TOUGH questions are to be asked about plans to build a new police station at Green Street after a panel of backbenchers said there were serious planning flaws.

The Environment Scrutiny panel say that they want answers about why the plans have progressed so far with so many problems unresolved.

They are due to meet Environment Minister Rob Duhamel for their quarterly update today and panel chairman Deputy John Young said they would be asking him some tough questions about the police station fiasco.

Last week, another panel heard evidence about proposals for the headquarters, which the States has been talking about in some form or another for the past 13 years.

The Education and Home Affairs panel is currently looking into operational concerns about the plans, following a decision by the States last week to put off a proposition from Deputy Judy Martin calling for the project to be scrapped because there were so many unanswered questions. They are due to report back to the States this week.
