Police Use Of Peel Centre Running Track

Meeting:

Mayor's Question Time

Date:

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Reference:

Question 2014/2960

Main question

Andrew Dismore

Will you join with me in praising the current substantial routine use of your Peel Centre running track by the Met's recruits and staff, as can be evidenced and photographed from passing Northern Line trains?

Are you happy to acknowledge that this running track is a serviceable facility, and not unusable, as may have been your impression?


Answer

The Mayor

The running track is used by MPS staff and recruits and is not open to the public. It is on land that forms part of the first tranche of land to be transferred to Redrow in September 2014. It will be for the developer to determine its future use via the planning process, which will ensure consultation takes place. Alternative provision will be provided for MPS staff and recruits.
