Cushendall station up for sale! thumbnailCushendall police station has been named as one of 12 earmarked for sale by the NI Policing Board.

CUSHENDALL police station is one of 12 earmarked by The Northern Ireland Policing Board to sell off in a bid to raise 1.5m.
It's also thought the imminent sales will help to secure a further 600,000 on annual running costs.
The plans, unveiled last week, are part of the 2016 PSNI Estate Strategy which outlines "major and minor works, custody provision" and "proposed station disposals".
The current police estate is worth 445m. The PSNI is set to spend an estimated 90m on "estate-related works" in the next three years.
Other stations due to be sold include Aughnacloy, Ballyclare, Ballynahinch, Castlederg, Maghera, Moira, Portaferry, Tandragee, Warrenpoint, Willowfield, and York Rd.
District Commander Superintendent John Magill said: "I believe the people of the Glens area understand that policing is delivered by people and not buildings, and that we will continue to keep people in our community safe. Cushendall station has been closed for some time now and our local policing teams and neighbourhood team will continue, as they have done, to deliver a service to the people of the Glens area that is reflective of local issues and concerns."
Alderman William King, Chair of Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP added: "PCSP will continue to monitor policing across the council area and ensure that all areas are policed appropriately, reflective of the needs of local communities".
