Stevenson Welcomes Progress On Peterhead Prison

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the news that Mike Hebden, Acting Governor of HMP Peterhead, is to be seconded to the Scottish Prison Service’s headquarters to spearhead work on the new HMP Grampian.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted that Mike will be using his wealth of experience at HMP Peterhead to help the Scottish Prison Service develop a replacement prison that meets the needs of staff and the local community.

“The current prison is a major source of employment in Peterhead and its replacement represents a significant investment for people in the area. The local community campaigned hard to see a replacement prison built in Peterhead to secure the future of the staff and families that rely upon it.

“The SNP Government announced plans for a new prison in Peterhead in the early days of our administration, delivering on our election promise and I am confident that Mike Hebden will do an excellent job moving this project forward during his secondment.”
