A housing developer has bought a section of unused land at Warwickshire Police's Leek Wootton headquarters.
CALA Homes has purchased land, which includes old tennis courts and sports fields, which is already allocated for up to 115 new houses in Warwick's local plan.
The Police and Crime Commissioner said money from the sale will be reinvested in the remaining police land.
"Having re-established Leek Wootton as the force's headquarters, it is good to be in a position to secure its future for policing for many years to come,"

"This adds to the success of CALA Homes in the Warwickshire region and over the coming months we will prepare and submit our planning application to Warwick District Council to enable a site start in 2023. We are very excited about this development which will bring the opportunity for new homes and wider benefits to the community."
CALA already has developments planned in Long Marston and Kineton.
