Plan to re-locate Frodsham police station


POLICE are seeking feedback on a proposal to relocated Frodsham Police Station to the nearby fire station.
The force is asking local people to give their views and take part in an online survey.
For years, the police station has been in Ship Street, but it is currently not manned on a permanent basis and doesn’t have a designated help desk.
The fire station is also in Ship Street and has considered suitable as a joint police and fire station.
The new location will also offer PCSOs the facility to book on and off their shifts, saving them valuable traveling time to and from their current location at Blacon police station and giving them more time out on patrol at key locations.
A Cheshire Police spokesperson said: “There is no proposed change to the current public service offer. The police contact point installed to the exterior of Frodsham Police Station would be moved to the new location. Public access to the station would not be diminished and the new location would have Constabulary signage to its exterior thereby maintaining a visible presence in the vicinity.”
There is already a commitment by Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane and Cheshire Fire Authority to share premises where possible, subject to the operational needs of both services.
If the proposal is agreed, the current police statuib would be surplus to operational requirements and available for disposal. Any proceeds from this would be reinvestment in future police estates proposals across Cheshire.
Members of the public can have a say on the proposal by taking part in an online survey which will open from 9am Tuesday August 29 until 5pm Monday September 25 at www.cheshire.police.uk/frodshamsurvey.
The results will be reported to the Police and Crime Commissioner, who will make a decision and feedback from the survey will be published on www.cheshire-pcc.gov.uk.
