Hopes for Halycon Homes

Halcyon Place starts to take shape

Halcyon Place is the new name for the road off London Road, Brentwood, that formerly contained Brentwood Police Station.

Cllr Karen Chilvers came up with the name when on holiday with her dog on a farm in the Essex countryside. She explains:

"So many road names have links to the military or people long forgotten in the midsts of time. Perhaps I felt partiularly relaxed the day officers asked ward councillors to approve a road name but I decided to resist some spurious suggestions that had been made about medievel custom and look forwards to, hopefully, a better future.

"After tumultuous times as a police station, fighting to save our police station and finally a disruptive few months as a building site, I hope that the future of this road is a calm oasis off the busy main road".

Halcyon has a few meanings, but is generally accepted as a definition of peace and tranquility. It also does have links to law and order, as its custodians aim to keep the peace.

Brentwood Liberal Democrats wish the future residents of Halcyon Place a happy, calm life in their new homes.
