Sale of Former Police Houses, 1/2, Forest Road, Ollerton

Following a review of the Ollerton Police Station site, it was identified that the pair of semi-detached former Police Houses on the site, which were used principally for storage purposes, were surplus to requirements.

The annual running costs of the former Police Houses is estimated at approximately £4,000 per year, but the main benefit arising from the sale of the property will be the capital receipt.
The houses were marketed and a number of offers were received leading to "best and final offers" being invited. This led to a further increase in the level of offers and a sale being agreed to the highest bidder.

Co-commissioning the delivery of criminal justice substance misuse support services in the county 2020 - 2028

The County Council commissions a comprehensive substance misuse support service, which includes a specific criminal justice pathway. The PCC has made a contribution towards the criminal justice substance misuse pathway since 2015, as a co-commissioning arrangement led by the County Council and under an Inter Authority Agreement. In 2019-0 the PCC's contribution to the service is £303,732. The contract expires in March 2020.

In 2018 the PCC commissioned an independent review of criminal justice substance misuse support services, in order to inform future commissioning of support services. The review sought to evaluate the effectiveness of the different city and county models and identify and develop options for future service delivery models.

The review found that criminal justice substance misuse support services generally help to reduce re-offending the quality of provision, that provision in the county is good and that the service should be recommissioned.
