Answer for Costs for police buildings awaiting sale

Answered By: 
The Mayor

During 2013/14 several sales have been complex. This has resulted in ongoing costs such as utilities, rates and management, forecast at £660,000 in total.

If these buildings had remained in use in the same period, running costs would have been £1,000,000.

It is not possible to provide a breakdown on a building by building basis.
