Interesting information:

Quote:

Figures have been released disclosing the cost of running coastguard station buildings in the UK.

The Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre (MRCC) in Aberdeen was the most expensive with rent, rates, utilities and maintenance totalling 280,311.


Clyde had the second highest costs at 112,441 and



Forth was the lowest at 44,662.

But actually its all a bit meaningless if, as is the case, some of the buildings are owned and others rented. I also suspect that the size of the facilities may differ somewhat - so comparisons should probably be on a per sq ft or possibly a per employee basis. Its presumably all a bit of a story to try and argue why Stornoway CG station should be retained (since they seem to have requested the information) - of course it doesn't look at the projected future costs (e.g. if the building has no extra capacity to move to a new way of working etc) nor does it look at the potential releasable value of the fixed assets if they are disposed of...
