Strathclyde Police HQ faces opposition
A planned relocation of Strathclyde Police’s HQ from Glasgow city centre to the east end has been thrown into doubt after the planned flit split the Force’s governing body - with some now openly calling for the £40m project to be scrapped.

Members are concerned that any move could be premature coming before a planned reorganisation of Scottish policing and there have been criticisms on grounds of cost.

Chief constable Steve House has argued that the present condition of the Force’s Pitt Street base is not conducive to their work and that a new build structure would be more cost effective over the long term.

Despite these concerns approval was given for a further £750k to be spent on the business case for a move to the Commonwealth games site with a final decision on the schemes viability to be made later this year.
