Police will increase their presence in Bath after plans for a larger, new station were approved by the force and local authority.
The police enquiry desk in Lewis House, Manvers Street, will be expanded to accommodate the neighbourhood policing team.
The One Stop Shop, which is run by Bath and North East Somerset Council, will continue to operate from the ground-floor of the building, but with a reduced footprint.
The old police station in Manvers Street was sold to the University of Bath for £7million in December 2015.
Cllr Tim Warren, leader of the council, described the move as a “huge boost” for Bath.
