A decision on whether the former home of Berkhamsted’s police station should be put up for sale is due to be made this afternoon.
The site has been empty for more than two years and was originally put on the market early last year – only to be later withdrawn.
Hertfordshire Police Authority instead considered merging the High Street site with neighbouring properties to create a ‘single central site’ for public sector services.
David Lloyd has been elected into the new role of police and crime commissioner for Herts since that time, taking over the responsibilities of the former police authority.
Berkhamsted community group B-Hive yesterday presented a list of development ideas to Mr Lloyd that townspeople have recommended for the former police station and neighbouring sites.
B-Hive is preparing a report that will suggest the area could be used for new homes as well as public services including a possible museum, theatre and town square.
A new path from the High Street to Butts Meadow could also be made through the area, the report suggests.
B-Hive leader John Bell said the report, due out in the next few days, could be included in a pack for developers who want to buy the property.
Police spokesman Hannah Williams said: “A decision to re-advertise the site for sale will be formally considered at a meeting this afternoon.
“The commissioner and the constabulary are continuing to consult closely with B-Hive to make sure that potential developers are aware of the community brief they have prepared.”
