Commissioner encourages Fishguard residents to have their say on future of Police Station
Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, Dafydd Llywelyn, is keen for the public to have their say on the future of Fishguard Police Station.
The Commissioner is currently considering different options for the Police Station as the current station is not viable.
Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner said:
“We’re currently considering different options for the location of Fishguard Police station. The current station simply isn’t viable; it requires significant investment and is far too large for current and future operation in the area. We’ve had constructive discussions with local Councillors and look forward to gathering public opinion over the next couple of weeks. I want to assure the public that although a change in location is possible, I am committed to maintaining a Police presence in the town centre”.
The Commissioner attended the November meeting of the Fishguard and Goodwick Chamber of Trade and Tourism, where he had an open discussion with Councillors on potential locations for the Police Station. Three options are now being considered:
1 – Remain in the current Station until the new Community Hub Collaboration Project is completed;
2 – Relocate to the Town Hall as an interim base while the Community Hub Collaboration Project is completed;
3 – Relocate to the current Fishguard Port Offices and coordinate the use of a town centre meeting room for public one-to-one meetings.
As your voice on police and crime issues, the Commissioner is eager to hear from local residents in order to make an informed decision on the future location of your local Police service. The Commissioner’s engagement team will be talking to local residents on Thursday 29 November, during Market Day, to hear your views on the matter. They will also be running an online survey on the Commissioner’s website for you to have your say - http://bit.ly/FishguardPoliceStation. The consultation will run until Friday 30 November. Alternatively, you’re welcome to contact the Commissioner’s office on (01267) 226 440
