First published in News

North Yorkshire’s new police and crime commissioner has pledged to press ahead with plans to move a force’s headquarters from a 17th-century manor house to a modern base nearby.

Julia Mulligan said although officers had made initial studies, her proposal to move the base for 450 staff at Newby Wiske, near Northallerton, remained in its early stages.

At her first press conference since being elected with a 54 per cent share of the 14.3 per cent turnout, she said she would develop a business case for the move in the next two months and that it would remain in Hambleton district.

Mrs Mulligan said she would focus her energies on appointing a chief constable for the force and unveiled plans for a Victim’s Charter.

So do you think, in these times of austerity, a move is good value for money for the rate payers of Nth Yorks?
Typical of Conservative or indeed labour or Libdems to find something pointless to waste our money on. They just can't help themselves can they?

I dopn't think this lady or the other such postholders have read the public mood. We don't want these posts. This particular lady was elected by 8% of the electorate.

If David Cameron were brave enough, he would abolish this costly and unnecessary role.

Of course she wants to move the HQ. She's obviously been on a Management Training Course and written it all down. When in doubt managers must move 'their people' and offices. Otherwise the next manager would have nothing to do: her successor will need to move it all back again.

This is why I did not vote for her. If the move goes ahead it will leave a listed building without a use and very little prospect of someone purchasing it and so we will lose another piece of architecture!
If she thinks the force needs fixing it can be done without moving people about. All that does is just add another dimension to the unhappiness of staff facing public sector cuts.
If she wants to make savings and cuts then she should start with her post and save us money and time in wasted rhetoric!
