Maldon’s old police station could finally be sold more than a year after it closed down.

The police station on West Square in the town closed on July 31 2017, with the force’s new base opening at the district council offices on Princes Road.

In January the site went up for sale via property consultants Kemsley LLP with a pricetag of £700,000.

The station was taken off the market in March but has now gone back up for sale.

Chris Cornhill from Kemsley LLP, said the property had been receiving a large amount of interest.

He said: “I cannot say how much is being bid for the site.

“It has only just been put back on the market in the last ten days.

“The offers need to come in by Wednesday November 28 and we are currently carrying out viewings through until then.

“It is a police station in terms of use at the moment, but it has attracted a range of developers and businesses.

“We are keen to engage with any interested party on the site.”

A freedom of information request by the Standard in September 2017 revealed the station was valued £400,000.

The two-storey building has a range of individual rooms on both floors including offices, interview rooms, locker areas and stores.

A kitchen and toilet facilities are also already present in the building.

Included on the site is a car park at the back of the building, with a group of small outbuildings also on the site.

A spokesman for Kemsley, said: “While we are of the opinion that the site would potentially suit redevelopment to residential or alternative uses, interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries of Maldon District Council.”
