A consultation will commence, enabling people to have their say on the potential closure of 53 police premises.

Two of the premises potentially up for disposal include those in Dunvegan and Broadford.  

These premises were identified following a review.

Police Scotland stated: "The demands facing policing and the way people engage with us and contact us have changed over the years, however our estate, which had been developed many years ago, has not changed.

"We are consulting with local communities, partners and stakeholders because we want you to have your say on the future of our estate. The feedback gathered from this consultation will be used to shape our final proposal on how many of the premises should be disposed of.

"Of the 53 premises identified for disposal, 43 of them are not used to permanently base Police Officers or Police Staff and are empty, some of them for a number of years. The remaining 10 are currently used as a base for Police Officers or Police Staff, however these staff can be relocated to other permanent facilities while still maintaining service delivery."

The engagement period will run from Wednesday 1 November until Wednesday 31 January 2018 and you will be able to have your say on the future of these properties.
