Former Northallerton police station to be repurposed

UK: The Inn Collection Group will transform the former Northallerton police station in North Yorkshire into a 32-bedroom inn, with work set to begin early next year.

The site is expected to open in autumn 2021 as The Northallerton Inn, creating up to 50 full and part time jobs.

The Grade II-listed building, which has remained vacant since the North Yorkshire Police Services moved to a new headquarters at Alverton Court, will undergo a multi-million refurbishment. It currently contains original features including a custody suite complete with cells and reception desk.

Managing director at The Inn Collection Group, Sean Donkin, said: “We are delighted to have completed on the police station in Northallerton, it’s a site we have been working together with the vendors and our design partners on for a considerable period of time. We are excited to be broadening our customer base and presence here in Yorkshire… it is a great country town that is full of character with good access and visitation, while the venue itself is superbly located.

“We have a proven track record for repurposing and enhancing historic buildings. We’re looking forward to applying that here and creating an exciting new venue in the heart of Northallerton and being a part of the community, providing year-round food, drink and accommodation services and, of course, employment opportunities at a critical time,” he said. 

The deal takes The Inn Collection’s portfolio of sites up to 18 and is its fourth Yorkshire location. It marks the seventh purchase from the group this year, supported by banking from OakNorth.

The Inn Collection Group were advised by Newcastle-based law firm Wardhadaway and Bradley Hall on pre-acquisition diligence.
