Police raise concerns over Hereford Futures project
1:08pm Wednesday 28th March 2012 in News
THE Hereford Futures project is putting the proper policing of the county at risk, a report claims.
West Mercia Police (WMP) says Hereford Futures and Herefordshire Council have not fully co-operated over proposals for a much-needed new county police HQ on land within the Edgar Street Grid development.
WMP says the council has not shown that it has the cash to acquire all the land it needs for the scheme.
As such, the police will be “strongly objecting” to any compulsory purchase order for land they own within the grid site seen as ideal for that HQ.
