£35M police HQ plan gets go-ahead

Manchester-based developer Ask Development has secured final approval to build a £35M police headquarters in the north east of the city.

The 38km² building at Central Park, Newton Heath, will house the Greater Manchester Police Authority’s (GMPA) divisional headquarters, and is part of a £56M reorganisation programme.

Ask Goodman, a joint venture between Ask Developments and Goodman, has already started work on GMPA’s new 73km² main headquarters at Central Park, contracted by urban regeneration company New East Manchester.

“Ask:Goodman is delighted the deal with GMP/GMPA has been finalised,” said Ask Developments director David Burkinshaw.

“Securing another HQ building for Greater Manchester Police is another successful step forward for the park and we look forward to getting started on site in the immediate future.”

Other projects in GMPA’s ratification programme include building a city centre enquiry policing post, refurbishing Collyhurst police station, creating Neighbourhood Policing Team accommodation at Bradford Park and closing Bootle Street, Grey Mare Lane and Newton Heath stations.

Developers expect to complete the divisional headquarters by September 2011.
