The Met have announced the front counter at Shepherds Bush police station will be re-opened temporarily as major renovation is planned in Hammersmith.

From Saturday 8 October, the 24/7 front counter at Hammersmith police station will shift to Shepherds Bush police station in Uxbridge Road. Meanwhile the front counter at Fulham police station in Fulham Road remains unchanged. 

The Met Police have now submitted a planning application to Hammersmith & Fulham Council outlining the changes they hope to make to the Grade II-listed 1930s police station in Hammersmith. 

These include a four-storey rear extension with an improved 24/7 front counter, upgrades to the station’s digital technology, a new custody suite and an expanded stables to help maintain the borough’s mounted police presence. 

If the renovation and expansion of Hammersmith station is approved, the front counter will return when works are completed.

“The existing 1930s police station in Hammersmith is in need of significant redevelopment to provide modern facilities,” said H&F Borough Commander, Met Police ChSupt Gideon Springer.

The front counter at Fulham police station in Fulham Road is open Tuesday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturday noon to 8pm.
