Proposals to use Norfolk County Council buildings more effectively will see the police share space at Reepham and Holt fire stations.
At a meeting on 10 June, the county council’s cabinet approved the idea as part of plans to save £2.4 million from its property budget over the next three years.
The council will now allow the Police and Crime Commissioner to build extensions to both fire stations, as part of the ongoing collaboration between the emergency services.
The county council will receive an annual rent of £1,500 for Reepham and £2,500 for Holt from the police over a 125-year period.
Councillor Greg Peck, cabinet member for commercial services and asset management and also county councillor for the Reepham Division, said: “This is a win-win for the county council and the police – it contributes to our property savings and supports joint working between the emergency services.”
