Farnham Police Station – Surrey

 

Farnham Police Station is located within Farnham town centre and is positioned just south of the designated Central Shopping Area. It occupies a prominent position within the town centre and the Conservation Area, being located on the town’s one-way system. It is adjacent to Gostrey Meadow recreation ground, the River Wey and is in close proximity to a number of listed buildings, including the Farnham Maltings, a disused brewery building converted into an arts and performance venue.

The Police Station was built in 1963. The site contains the main station buildings and a large parking area to the rear. A row of six semi-detached houses are located in the south-eastern corner of the site. The houses at either end of the row were in use as accommodation for serving officers. The four remaining houses were offices for police operations. The total site area is 0.54 hectares.

The site closed around 2012.

In February 2014 Churchill Retirement Living resubmitted a planning application to
provide 50 sheltered/retirement living apartments following a Planning Inspector’s
appeal decision in November 2013 dismissing an appeal for insufficient Affordable
Housing provision. The site has now been DEMOLISHED!
