An Estates Review carried out by North Wales Police identified a need to rationalize facilities to the benefit of Police Officers and the wider community and to enable the force to better deliver 21st century policing.
Responding to the conditions and terms of occupancy of our various existing premises locally a new, purpose built Operational Hub in Llangefni was determined to provide the best solution. This would provide a base for policing and for forward deployment, following briefing to various locations around the Island.
During design development a further review determined that the Hub was not the most effective or efficient model to Policing on Anglesey and the brief was redefined. Working together the Project and Design Teams developed the design to provide instead a new Police station, replacing existing leased premises and facilitating centralization of the three smaller stations.
The new building provides flexible accommodation for agile working for the Police, combining operational and welfare facilities. During construction of the building the brief was revised again and the layout was adjusted to provide a local facility for the Probation Service, incorporated without detriment to the Programme.
