Four Conservative Erdington councillors are objecting to proposals to close Erdington Police Station.
The proposal was reported in today’s Birmingham Mail.
Councillors Alden, Beauchamp, Bennett and Moore have written a letter to each member of the West Midlands Police Authority, outlining their ‘serious concerns.’
An extract from the letter reads:“Erdington has always had a police station and, as the third busiest shopping area in the City (after the City Centre and Sutton Coldfield), it is an area that continues to have a great need for a locally-based police station. The Police teams in Erdington, with the support of the Station, provide a valuable service to deter High Street-related crime in Erdington. Over recent years, they have also played a key role in dealing with serious crime in the Erdington area. It is quite clear that all of this and much more good work would not have been possible without having the base of a local police station in the heart of the community. We hope that when you consider this agenda item on Thursday, you will take on board the very strong views of the Erdington community and councillors that Erdington must continue to have a police station and we would welcome your support when this item is discussed to ensure that it always continues to have one.”
