PROPOSED NEW PRISON IN NORTH BUCKS

PROPOSED NEW PRISON IN NORTH BUCKS

You may be aware that the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is proposing to build a new Category C Prison at HMP Grendon and Springhill.

There is much opposition to this proposal as it will have a massive detrimental effect in the area.

This flyer provides more details of the proposed new prison and outlines the concerns of local residents. The consultation period ends on 29th January 2021.
