Construction is underway at the new 24-hour police station in Nightcliff as part of the John Stokes Redevelopment.

The police station forms a critical part of a wider $45 million commitment to redevelop John Stokes Square, providing a central community hub, improving lifestyle and reinvigorating the area. 

Territorians and local business are being supported throughout this development, with 250 jobs being created during the life of the project.

The new 24-hour police station will include:

  • A 24-hour police station
  • Community space
  • Muster rooms to cater for General-Duties officers 
  • Interview rooms
  • Car park
  • Outside respite area for Police
  • Break-out spaces

The John Stokes Redevelopment also includes the construction of specifically designed public housing, including for seniors and people living with disabilities, along with a pedestrian friendly link between Nightcliff Village and Nightcliff Shopping Centre.

The John Stokes Residential Construction tender is currently out to market.
