"A POLICE training centre in Hendon will be modernised and partly demolished for community purposes as part of a major regeneration plan.
"The Peel Centre, which is the main training facility for Metropolitan Police officers in Aerodrome Road, Colindale, is only partly used for regional training purposes and unsuitable to meet the needs of 21st century policing, senior police officers announced on Friday.
"The 73 acre site, located next to Colindale tube station, was built in the 1930s and for almost 80 years has been the main training site for police officers serving the Greater London area.
"Existing police training facilities will be modernised and the rest of the site will be opened up to the public creating new homes, jobs, shops and open space, as well as a new primary school. The plans are part of Barnet Council's Colindale Area Action Plan (CAAP).
"... A public exhibition of the plans will take place at the RAF Museum in Colindale on October 4, 5 and 6."
