Written by Amy

Following the opening of the new Community Police Station at Richard Greenhow Centre in Central Avenue, Gretna, Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has been retained by Police Scotland to market the former Gretna Police Station for sale.

The attractive detached two-storey building, with outbuildings and a garage, occupies a prominent roadside position at the north-east edge of the town centre, adjacent to the retail outlet village.

The current layout of the 3,843 sq ft property reflects the former use and includes offices, staff areas, detention cells and various stores. To the front of the property is a parking area with disabled access ramp and a secure compound. To the rear is a small courtyard providing access to the garage.

Gretna is a popular market town located on the border of Scotland and England, 10 miles north of Carlisle and 23 miles south east of Dumfries, benefitting from direct access onto the A75 and M74.

The town benefits from excellent retail provision, with Gretna Gateway Outlet Village being home to more than 50 retailers. Gretna Green is also a popular wedding destination with a number of venues and hotels, including the famous Blacksmiths Shop.

Fraser Carson, surveyor in Shepherd’s Dumfries office, said: “Following our firm’s recent success in disposing of other former police stations throughout the country on behalf of Police Scotland, we expect to receive strong levels of interest in this property.

“This building is well suited to various alternative commercial uses or to residential redevelopment, subject to obtaining the necessary Local Authority consent.”

Offers over £175,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on 01387 264333.
