Land at Carr Road, Nelson

Published: Thursday, 1st February 2018

Lancashire Constabulary has expressed an interest in buying land at Carr Road in Nelson which has been declared as surplus to requirements by Pendle Council.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Lancashire Constabulary are in the early stages of exploring whether to build a new base on the land which is between Victoria Park and the M65.

Councillors will be asked to give the Council the go ahead to negotiate terms with the police at the Executive meeting next week (Wednesday 7 February).

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, said: “We’re still at an early stage but the prospect of the land being developed into a modern, fit for purpose base for policing in Pendle is attractive.”

A funfair and circus has been held on this land for some years and approval has been given for it to be held in 2018.

The Council is looking for a suitable alternative site for the future, but despite a full review of Council land, none have been identified yet.
