Hurstwood secures former police station

A former North West police station has been bought by Manchester property investor Hurstwood.

The company is considering a number of plans for the redevelopment of Tyldesley police station, on Shuttle Street, which is close to the town centre.

Hurstwood Chairman Stephen Ashworth said: “The two storey building is a landmark in the area but needs to be given a new lease of life and new tenants need to be attracted. In order to make this happen we are working on plans to redevelop the property.”

“The former police station represents an excellent addition to the Hurstwood portfolio in the North West. The acquisition forms part of our ongoing investment strategy. We continue to focus on our core activity of commercial property investment, development, sales and lettings along with land facilitation for house builders.”

The station was closed in 2006 following a Great Manchester Police review of resources in the area.

With approximately 500 occupier clients at over 100 locations, Hurstwood has commercial property interests in the North West, Midlands and Wales. It is based at No 1 Marsden Street, Manchester.
