The Police Station, Ulverston

Architecture & Engineering

Multi-Disciplinary Project

Ulverston Police Station


BDN have exchanged contracts on the former Ulverston Police Station and Courthouse, acting as lead architects, engineers and project managers for the site’s proposed transformation. The buildings fell out of use since it was vacated by the police in 2015, and despite being privately sold, has remained unoccupied since.

In May 2023, we submitted a planning application with the intention of creating a brand-new multi use destination for Ulverston.

The intentions for the site look to transform the damaged, disused buildings into a mixed-use venue of commercial space, offices, boutique serviced accommodation and new homes, with a tasteful and sympathetic programme of restoration proposed. Stood vacant since 2015, the former Police Station will be reimagined with the five old jail cells repurposed as two boutique serviced rooms, with their own en-suites and kitchenette space. Demolished prior to BDN’s acquisition of the site, the ‘West Wing,’ which historically housed the superintendent’s quarters, will be rebuilt to house seven further serviced rooms.

We will also establish a new North West headquarters in the main police station building if the plans are approved, which will include a communal kitchen, meeting room and desk space for the expanding practice.
