The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime has submitted plans for a new Metropolitan Police training centre in Colindale.
The new facility would replace the existing Peel Centre in Aerodrome Road.
It would provide training and operational space, and house around 2,000 officers and staff. MOPAC say the remainder of the 73 acre site would be opened up for the benefit of the public “at some point in the future”. The application forms part of a wider regeneration programme which will include plans for new homes, shops and a primary school.
