Full business case and appendices

The full business case with five appendices and the survey report are now available for download.

The business case was not submitted to the Home Office so the proposed merger will not go ahead. It is now available to the public as it was agreed that it would be published for transparency as part of the publication strategy regardless of whether it went ahead or not.

The files can also be found in the document links section of this page.

The abridged version of the full business case and the engagement report, which includes the survey results, are now available for download.

The files can be found in the document links section of this page.

The merger is not a done deal. The opinions of staff, the public and stakeholders are vital in this process and will form part of the business case that we present to the Home Office in the autumn.

  • Outline business case agreed in April 2018
  • Staff, public and stakeholder engagement over the summer
  • Development of full business case over the summer
  • Both chief constables and police and crime commissioners to review in September 2018 and make a final decision on whether or not to proceed
  • Deliver full business case to Home Office in early October 2018
  • Initial decision from Government by December 2019, subject to Parliamentary process
  • If supported, election of single PCC to cover both areas in May 2020
