This reached us via the neighbourhood alert newsletter (written by Superintendent James Sutherland, Area Commander for the south of Cambridgeshire) and may be of interest to residents:
Last week we told you about proposals to build a new police station on the outskirts of Milton.
The current facilities at Parkside Police Station in Cambridge do not allow the Constabulary to fully respond to today’s needs. There is no room to expand the existing station, too few cells, the location is subject to heavy traffic and the building doesn’t meet modern standards.
The Constabulary, alongside the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner, is now undertaking a formal consultation on proposals to build the new hub in Milton.
You may have already had a look at our virtual exhibition where you can view the proposals and leave your feedback. We’re also holding a series of live chats through the website and the next one takes place on Wednesday 15th July from 12pm to 2pm.
To take part, simply visit the website and click on the yellow speech bubble in the bottom right hand corner of the page. Our project team will be on hand to answer your questions.
If you can’t make this evening then we have further sessions taking place on:
Wednesday 15th July from 12pm to 2pm
Tuesday 21st July from 5pm to 7pm
Saturday 25th July from 10am to 12pm
Thursday 30th July from 12pm to 2pm
We hope as many people as possible give us their feedback and help shape the future of policing in Cambridgeshire.
