Press Release - Police Station Purchase
Iver Parish council has occupied its current home, 63 Chequers Orchard, the old Police House since March 2008. Prior to this residency, Council administration was conducted from the Police Station itself. Iver Parish Councils lease at this premises runs out in March 2018, therefore we will have to find a new location.
In common with all other public agencies, Thames Valley Police must make large financial savings within its budget, and the future of the Police station fall within that category.
Iver Parish Council has been in discussion with Thames Valley Police for some time and has made significant progress toward the potential purchase of the whole site as a community facility, with a view to both securing the long term future of the Council and protecting the police presence within The Ivers. Thames Valley Police would thus be able to maintain a ‘touchdown facility’ in the area and Iver Parish Council would be able to consider a number of potential community opportunities given the impending Local Government Review of the area.
Such a community facility would allow for the provision of space for local groups to use. This will be informed by the responses received from the Neighbourhood Plan Consultation.
