calls for decision to close Burnham Police Station to be reversed
MP has this week called for the decision to shut the town's police
station to be reversed.
Heappey has spoken out against the cost-cutting plans after we
that the Police Station's enquiry office looks set to move into
the town's library, according to Somerset's Police and Crime Commissioner
Heappey told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Libraries make excellent
focal points for residents to access information. I enjoy holding
my surgeries in Burnham Library and it would be great to see the
police, council and other authorities using them too."
whilst the library is the perfect place for a police officer or
PCSO to hold a drop in session for residents who want a quick
chat, libraries are not a replacement for a police station."
"Burnham and Highbridge needs a police station of its own
to make residents feel secure and to provide a base for policing
in the town and nearby during the summer when the
population increases with all our visitors."
