Proposal for new police headquarters

31 Mar 2016

Docklands is set to become the city’s police precinct, with the State Government seriously considering a plan for a new Victoria Police Centre on Spencer St.

The proposed building, at 311 Spencer St, would neighbour the existing City West Police Complex at 313 Spencer St.
The proposal, from Australia Post and CBUS Property was put forward under the Government’s Market-led Proposal Guidelines.

If the government agrees to the proposal for the new building, it would replace Victoria Police’s current headquarters at the World Trade Centre on Flinders St, the lease for which expires in 2020.

The Government has confirmed the proposal has proceeded to stage four (of five stages) of market-led proposal process and exclusive negotiation will not commence to determine whether an acceptable agreement can be reached between the parties.

The Valuer-General of Victoria will also consider the proposal throughout stage four to ensure it offers value for money for Victorians.

Treasure Tim Pallas said Victoria was “open for business” and open to ideas from the private sector that would benefit all Victorians.

“Our Market-Led Proposals Guideline had made the process more transparent while protecting the community’s interest,” Mr Pallas said.

“Importantly, it also provides certainty to parties who approach the Government with job-creating ideas – like this proposal for a secure police precinct at the west end of the CBD.”
