Yeovil police station modernisation

Yeovil police station modernisation

Nov 2, 2018

It’s been confirmed that four million pounds is to be spent modernising Yeovil Police Station.

The decision by Avon and Somerset Police Crime Commissioner, Sue Mountstevens, means Yeovil’s police HQ will now remain open.

In April last year, the cells in Yeovil were shut and it was feared the whole building would be closed. 

Officers making arrests in Yeovil have had to take suspects to the cells at Bridgwater police station.

It's a practice that looks set to continue after a spokesperson confirmed there are no plans to re-open the custody suite in Yeovil.

The refurbishment of the Yeovil Police HQ includes reducing the number of floor areas from six to three.

The building will also be fitted with new cladding.

If planning permission is granted, work would start next summer and the new-look building opened by late 2020.
