North Yorkshire Police hopes to save £445,000 by moving its headquarters to land just north of Thirsk,
The county's Police and Crime Commissioner has agreed to buy a site next to the A19 at South Kilvington.
If planning permission is granted, the modern facilities would replace the current HQ at Newby Wiske.
Commissioner Julia Mulligan said: "The current headquarters are a converted stately home set in a remote village. As such, they are too costly to run, difficult to access and not suited to modern policing.
"By relocating to an energy-efficient, custom-made facility that is close to major roads, we'll be able to provide a modern, cost-effective base that allows the police to do their job better and provide real value for taxpayers' money."
The public will be asked for their views on the plans next year.
Police have named a man who died after a collision in North Yorkshire last week as Paul Barker from Thirsk.
The 46-year-old, who was riding a orange and white KTM motorcycle, was involved in a collision with a red DAF goods vehicle shortly before 6pm on Thursday 2 May on Moor End Lane between Sowerby, Thirsk and Dalton.
Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who saw either the goods vehicle or the motorcycle before the incident, is being asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
A man has died after being crushed under a forklift truck at a steel plant in North Yorkshire.
Fire crews were called to Severfield-Watson, near Thirsk, at about 8:30am on Wednesday. It took nearly two hours to free the man from under the vehicle. He was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary but pronounced dead.
Police officers in North Yorkshire are renewing their appeal for who they believe may be a key witness to a collision in Thirsk on October 26th in which a motorcyclist died.
Officers are trying to to trace the driver of a white van who believe may have witnessed the crash where a black Honda Civic collided with a blue Yamaha motorcycle.
The motorcycle subsequently set on fire, causing a significant blaze, behind the van that police are trying to find the driver of.
The 27-year-old motorcycle driver, Nazarovs Stanilavs, died of his injuries.
A 22-year-old man who was arrested following the collision remains on police bail.
It is vital that the driver or passengers from the van contact the police immediately, as I strongly believe that they will have vital information about the collision. The fire caused by the incident was of such a size that they must have seen it in the rear view mirrors. It may be that the van’s occupants did not realise the severity of the injuries suffered by the motorcyclist.
“I also need to speak to anyone else who was in the area at the time and can help with this investigation.”
