I blogged the day before yesterday about West Midlands Police ‘considering’ moving their home in the The Big Peg to Summerhill Police Station. We now understand that the ‘considering’ is over (if it ever really began) and the blue lamp will be staying with us (along with the excellent patrol coverage and incident response we get in the JQ). The plan is to move to the first floor of their current location in The Big Peg, releasing the ground floor for other uses, and then to be public-facing with other services that will be provided via the Jewellery Quarter Development Trust /Business Improvement District. This arrangement, the one first discussed back in December, represents a good example of hard-pressed service providers and local people getting organised to provide services that WE think are important.
