    Alan … As we had already figured, a less than sound economic decision by The Met once again with another part of The Estate sold off below achievable value .This, as most Met Property is ‘ Prime location’ . A pattern of Economic naivity has emerged through such sales & will, one must assume, continue to do so ! Why not enter into a ‘Partneship’ with Developers and share the realised profits ? Would seem to make sense to me.

    Congrats for soing some excellent ‘digging’ Alan ….The People of London need to be made aware of such Financal irresponsibilty by MOPAC & The Met Police..

    This has been going on for years. When the civvy estate managers ( which in my former force appears to be the bloke who cut the grass 25 years ago, but has now been put in charge of all things building wise) In my particular part of rural shire, just outside weasel piss creek, a new shiny police station was required to replace the lovely old Victorian nick that was deemed not fit for purpose. The answer, get a builder to flatten the old site, one nick, 4 three bedroom police houses, a nice cottage garden, and nearly five acres of grounds, then build the shiny new station out of papier-mâché and Lego, whilst giving him all the land to do with what he wants. The end result a shiny, but utterley useless station that will probably need total rebuilding in 10 to 15 years, whilst the builder nets about £5 mill from the house sales resulting from land development.
    But, the whole exercise was cost neutral for the force so it must if been a good plan……
