Fylde MP Mark Menzies has reacted with disappointment after plans revealed there is no chance of St Annes Police Station reopening.
Mr Menzies had been told there was a chance the closed station could be reopened, after Government funding gave Lancashire Constabulary more officers in Fylde.
However, this week plans were lodged to turn the building into a nursery.
While Mr Menzies fully supports the new business in the the town, he said he was disappointed to find out from a planning application this week that those plans now appeared to be shelved.
He said: “It is deeply disappointing that police and crime commissioner Clive Grunshaw decided to dispose of St Annes Police Station – particularly as he suggested to me he would think about reopening it, following the extra funding granted by the Government for extra officers, and his above-inflation tax rises which he said were to provide further officers.
“I spoke to senior police officers since who suggested St Annes station would be an ideal base for the extra officers the Government has funded.
“Unfortunately, our Police and Crime Commissioner clearly has no interest in Fylde and never had any intention of reopening St Annes Police Station; he closed Lytham Police Station and Kirkham is closed to the public.
“We need a permanent police presence back in our towns, especially over the busy summer season months.”
