Homes for the elderly plan for Welwyn Garden City police station
PLANS to demolish a town centre police station and replace it with an apartment block for the elderly have been unveiled.
Hertfordshire Constabulary and developers McCarthy and Stone want to redevelop the site on The Campus in WGC.
If planning permission is granted by the borough council, the site will be sold to the developers.
The development will feature warden assisted apartments for the elderly and will also include a “community facility”.
A spokeswoman for the developers said: “It;s McCarthy and Stone’s aim to enhance the appearance of the site by replacing the existing late 20th century building with a sensitive development which will respect the predominant garden city architecture of the area and conservation area.”

A police spokesman confirmed WGC would retain a police station, and the current office would not close until a new one opened.
He said: “We’ve got a new station to open before we close the old one, like we did in Hatfield.”
