What is happening?
In 2017, The Metropolitan Police announced that Teddington Police Station was scheduled for closure. In August 2021, Sophie Linden, the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, confirmed that the site would be marketed for sale. The site is currently being advertised for sale on the open market.
Munira believes the building should be retained for community use.
Specifically, Teddington’s Park Road Surgery urgently needs more space, and there is a desperate need for more affordable housing for local key workers and young people who have been priced out of the housing market in our area.
The sale of this precious site provides a rare opportunity to transform a publicly owned building into a community asset with health services fit for the 21st century.
What is Munira doing?
Munira launched a petition on this website which has attracted over 2,000 signatures. You can add your name here.
Munira and Gareth Roberts, Leader of Richmond Council wrote to the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in February 2022 calling for the site to be retained for community use. You can see a copy of the letter further below.
