Kincardine is rarely used, police said in 2017.

In a video appeal posted today on the official Police Scotland Youtube channel, Superintendent Angus Macinnes explained: “Currently we have 53 surplus properties across Scotland... these are ones we’ve not used for some time, or that we will shortly stop using due to changes in the way we deploy police officers.

“The future of each station/property is open for discussion - please do not believe the critics who will tell you it’s a done deal.”

He continued: “I urge you to access the online consultation and answer a few questions and tell us what you think.

“Once the consulation is finished, the results will be analysed and a report submitted through the Police Scotland Executive to the Scottish Police Authority (SPA).

“Proposals for each property will be developed after that.

“Having started on November 1 2017, the consultation finishes on January 31 - so there’s not long left. Don’t miss your chance to tell us what you think.”
