New update: No decision about the police station before mid November

On 1 August it was announced that MOPAC (the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime) has added a further three months to the decision about the sale of the Notting Hill police station, thereby pushing it to mid November – at the earliest.

Notting Hill police station AVC protected

The Met has decided to close and sell Notting Hill police station, in spite of all the opposition during the consultation. However, Kensington Society has succeeded in getting the building designated an AVC (Asset of Community Value). In addition, the council’s policy CK1 clearly states that sites of social or community use will not be allowed to be used for something else if other social or community use can be found for them – and there are many possible uses for the the police station. The fight continues!
