Ministry of Defence says purpose of proposed building is confidential

Braintree and Witham Times: Ministry of Defence says purpose of proposed base is confidential Ministry of Defence says purpose of proposed base is confidential

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) says the purpose of an “urgently required” new building at its police training base is confidential.

A planning application for a new modular training building at the MoD base in Wethersfield was lodged on January 22.

The building, which will have 30 parking spaces, will be able to accommodate 40 trainees and eight staff at a time.

A statement from applicant agent Templeman Design said: “The use of this building is going to be for training purposes, no further information on user can be revealed.

“The facility proposed is an urgent request and the development must be started within March to enable completion a few weeks after, so the facility can be immediately used.”

The former RAF base has been used as a training centre for MoD Police since 1991.

A public consultation period on the application closes on February 19.

How can Newsquest get so much so wrong so often when scribbling up their Headlines?

The purpose of the base is no secret. It is the Headquarters and Training Centre of the Ministry of Defence Police. (AKA ‘HQ Mod Plod’).

It is just the purpose of one planned new facility within the Headquarters which is not currently being made public.

I sometimes think Confucius must have had the BWT Editorial office in mind when he said “ Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated”.

Come on guys (and girls?) - do get a grip. Say what you mean and mean what you say - then try to put that into simple written form for once. It's really not that difficult.

If you would like me and the gang to call in and show you the ropes we can arrange a date. However, please send the lunch menu in advance for approval. (BTW I think Bhudee is a veggie - hope that doesn't give you a problem. She's normally OK with a bit of nutcake and yogurt).

Oh, and by the way, let’s not be having any thoughts of palming us off with that dodgy Fish and Chip malarky in the Museum.

It’s Silver Service in the Executive Boardroom or nuffink I’m afraid.
