Camborne Police Station gets permission for £3m overhaul

A police station in Cornwall has been granted planning permission for a £3m redevelopment.

Camborne Police Station, which was built in the 1960s, will get a new police enquiry desk, new windows and a new roof.

Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez said the work was "desperately needed".

She said it would "provide both staff and the public a building to use that is fit for the 21st Century".

The new station is expected to be operational by early 2025.

The station's enquiry office remains open from Monday to Saturday, 08:00 to 18:00.
