Police will stay in Willaston

Police will remain in Willaston - even if plans to build a new housing complex on the site of the estate's local police station are approved.

That's according to Douglas council, which is submitting plans for a 40-unit sheltered housing block to government this week.

If the spending's approved, the sheltered housing will be built opposite the Willaston shops, where the police station currently stands.

Chairman of the Housing and Property Committee David Ashford explained that the police would still have a presence in Willaston. Similar to what has been done in Upper Pulrose, the police would have an office inside the housing complex.
