Police are asking the public for their views on a proposed new base for Morpeth officers.
Plans are being considered to re-locate officers from their current station in Castle Square, just outside the town centre, to a new more accessible, central location.
Office space is available in a first floor business unit at Sanderson Arcade and the force is currently considering moving the Morpeth Neighbourhood Policing Team into the busy retail and business centre. The office is in Austin House, the entrance is adjacent to the Central Bean coffee shop, and is accessible via a lift and stairs.
The current police office is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and these opening hours will remain in the future.
This proposal would allow police officers and staff to relocate from outdated and expensive to run premises and provide police services from a new community base which is more accessible to the public and offers better value for money.
