The Wolverhampton office of Towler Shaw Roberts is providing its local expertise in the sale of two Staffordshire police stations.

The stations at Kinver and Wombourne are among eight across the county that are being sold.

TSR’s Martin Zaki expects a high level of interest in both the Kinver and Wombourne properties, with both suitable for various uses, subject to obtaining planning permission.

He said: “We have been appointed alongside Jon Flowith & Partners, the main agents, who are selling eight police stations around Staffordshire.

“We have been engaged as a local agent for Wombourne and Kinver to use our local knowledge to assist with the sale.

“Kinver is closed, but Wombourne Police Station, which is currently used by officers, is still in operation.

“There’s an eight week period where tenders are being invited and then a decision will be made.

“Both are in desirable locations and we anticipate a high level of interest, both from local developers and also further afield.”
