Wednesday 11 February 2009


Petition presented to the House but not read on the Floor

Police Stations (Essex)

The Petition of residents of Hadleigh, Thundersley and Benfleet,

Declares that we are concerned about the move of the Coroners' Office from the old Hadleigh Police Station, are deeply worried that Councillors may be considering selling this building off for yet more development which our community cannot absorb, believes there is a need for a Police Station, with public access, in Hadleigh, and that the station is a community asset and residents should be consulted before any decisions are taken on its future and that Councillors should support this petition on behalf of residents.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for the Home Department to encourage Essex County Councillors and the Police Authority to return Hadleigh Police Station to police use,

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Bob Spink.
