Wiltshire Police flogging land for development

The green area to the north of the Wiltshire Police Headquarters site in Devizes, between Parkfields and Quakers Road, is no longer required and will be sold. The proceeds of the sale will get invested back to front line staffing and facilities, ensuring the force remains fit for modern policing.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner is inviting residents of Quakers Road, Parkfields and the surrounding areas to view the plans at www.wiltshire-pcc.gov.uk.

The opportunity to review the plans will give people the option to provide feedback via email to oxford@struttandparker.com or at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Parkfields2 by Monday 18 January. Responses will help to shape the scheme ahead of formal planning submission to WC.

Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson said: "We would usually hold a physical event within the community to showcase drawings and artwork of the proposed residential development plans, but due to the current Government restrictions and to maximise people's safety, we've chosen to move things online. It is still really important we give local residents the opportunity to share their views about how the development of this site might look so I encourage you to take a look and provide your feedback.
"With the help of our partnering designers, we believe the proposal is an attractive residential development, sympathetically designed with high energy efficiency, local materials sourced where possible and improved landscaping. The local highways have been considered and roads widened where possible to alleviate any extra traffic.

"It's important we're being efficient with our police estate and it is my duty to maximise the value of any excess I hold. We need to continue to invest in technology to support front line policing so any profit will be effectively reinvested into the Force."
