Our safety not a con­sid­er­a­tion

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

I am writ­ing to voice my great con­cern about the pro­posed clo­sure of Uxbridge Police Sta­tion and to lo­cate the only con­tin­u­ously manned police sta­tion front desk at Hayes End.

Uxbridge con­tains the Civic Cen­tre, is cen­tral to the Bor­ough of Hilling­don and is ac­ces­si­ble by a range of trans­port links to all res­i­dents if the Bor­ough.

In ad­di­tion the police sta­tion is di­rectly op­po­site Uxbridge Mag­is­trates Court - im­por­tant for police who are wit­nesses in­volved in pro­ceed­ings there.

Hayes End has poor trans­port links from the rest of the Bor­ough and is not a place many peo­ple would go to as opposed to Uxbridge where peo­ple reg­u­larly come to work, shop and en­joy the restau­rants and leisure fa­cil­i­ties.

The pro­posal is clearly about money as the site of Uxbridge Police Sta­tion would raise a large sum of money from de­vel­op­ers.

It does not con­sider the safety of the res­i­dents or their wishes or the ef­fi­ciency of the police ser­vice. Anne Coburn Uxbridge
