Consultation opens for plans to build homes on Baldock Police Station site

A PUBLIC consultation will start for plans to build homes on a former police station site.

North Hertfordshire Homes are asking members of the public to voice their thoughts on the architectural design of the buildings likely to occupy the former Baldock Police Station site.

The consultation will open on Thursday between 3pm and 8pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Church Street Baldock.

North Hertfordshire Homes will be submitting a planning application for eight new houses in a traditional style, to compliment local materials and with self contained secure parking.

Baldock Police Station, having served the public since the 1960s, closed in May last year due to Hertfordshire Police force facing a �36 million budget shortfall over four years.

Since its closure, officers have been based at the station in Letchworth GC. In March this year, the Comet reported there would be a police base for PCSOs at Baldock Community Centre on Simpson Drive.

Plans to build a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses are being considered. The development is to have a traditional Georgian style as is common in the High Street.
