Hook Parade base for our local Police teams?
For some years now, each ward has had its own Safer Neighbourhood Police teams. The Chessington South and Chessington North & Hook teams work together to everyone's benefit, and they have been looking for a joint base within the area. At the moment they work out of Surbiton Police Station which is a frustrating distance from the two wards.
The Metropolitan Police have now submitted a planning application to convert one of the shops in Hook Parade for this purpose. It is the shop to the right of the Debra charity shop - in fact, the one where they used to sell furniture - plus a part of the building behind the charity shop.
The Police are not proposing to have a front desk here, but to create office space.
The South of the Borough Neighbourhood Committee has the final say on the planning application, which means that I am not allowed to make any comments at all about the actual plans, but you can view them here on the Council website. You can also submit your comments through that web page.
