I WRITE as chairman of the Norfolk Road Residents' Association and on behalf of many other disillusioned Oxmoor residents.
For several years, both police and police community support officers have had a base in office premises at 10 Sapley Square.
When the square was recently demolished, it was agreed that the officers should be accommodated in the newly built Maple Centre, this venue, like the previous one, being at the heart of the Oxmoor. This information was given to the association by the police sergeant who was an invited guest at an NRRA meeting.
I heard very recently, however, that the police authority has now reneged on this agreement. I believe, as do many others, that this is an ill-conceived, retrograde step and not in the best interest of the public.
Within easy walking distance of most local people, the officers' proposed new home offered first class accommodation and would have allowed them to continue the provision of an extremely valuable service.
I sincerely hope that common sense will prevail and that the authority will honour its original pledge.
