Cleveland Police Community Safety Hub granted planning permission

A new Community Safety Hub, designed by inter-disciplinary consultancy McBains Cooper for the Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner, has been granted planning permission.

The new multi-million pound facility will be constructed on land at Hemlington Grange in Middlesbrough, an area in receipt of wider investment by Middlesbrough Borough Council.

The 3,345 square metre, Community Safety Hub and base for Cleveland Police will be an innovative, efficient, and technologically capable building, providing a work space for policing and community safety partners. A key function of the building will be the police control room, providing flexibility in being able to respond to the public and manage incidents across the area.

The new hub is being funded by the sale of the current headquarters site at Ladgate Lane to housing developer Persimmon.

McBains Cooper has provided architectural design services to the scheme during the planning stage and will continue to work with Cleveland Police as the project progresses through to completion.
