Blenheim Police Station works to go ahead

Remedial works to remove the part of Blenheim Police Station identified as having potential seismic issues have been approved, and are due to start in early August.

The works will involve the 1993 additions at the rear of the original Police Station building being removed.

The cell block, which is in this part of the building, will be back in use within eight to ten weeks.

Prisoners that would normally be held in custody in Blenheim will be transported to the Nelson Police Station while work is carried out.
