The plans for a new fire & police station on the Link Road Edgar Street have been scrapped with a new location being found on the former sports field of Painter Bros in Holmer Road.

I was at B+Q today. Picking up a 'click and collect' item. The traffic was horrendous on those service roads'! My gut feeling is that this is a wrong location for a Police hub. It is totally in the middle of nowhere. It might service the financial constraints but in no way does it service physical demand from the Public.  But I suppose everything is internet based now. So Campion may think that the location is irrelevant.
