Executive summary

The MOPAC Policing and Public Access in London document identified Rotherhithe Police Station as a site which was unsuitable for operational requirements in the long term, and identified the need for new facilities nearby. This paper proposes the acquisition of a leasehold interest at the London Borough of Southwark’s Seven Islands Leisure Centre, investment in this site to fit it out, and the marketing for sale of Rotherhithe Police Station.
The cost and terms of the lease, and the estimated value of the Rotherhithe Police Station are set out in exempt Part 2. The proposed investment is £499,000 and a contribution towards these costs from London Borough of Southwark has been offered as part of the agreement.

2. The proposed £499,000 investment to fit out the site, and
