Redevelopment of the former police station at Saintfield
The former police station on the Crossgar Road was one of a series built for the Royal Ulster Constabulary to a standard design by TFO Rippingham the Chief Architect at the Ministry of Finance.
After closure it was offered for sale. In a press release issued on 26 February 2014 the Department for Social Development indicated that the site would be redeveloped for housing “The development on a former police station site, will provide eight apartments and four houses for families on the housing waiting list. The new homes are being built by Trinity Housing Association with part funding from the Northern Ireland Executive through the Department for Social Development. Completion is planned for February 2015 . . . . The new homes will be built to high energy efficiency standards. All have also been designed to Secured by Design and Lifetime Homes standards, ensuring added security for tenants and flexibility of adaptation if required at a later date. A feature of the new development is roof solar panels to assist water heating.”
