About

By the time it’s complete, this £2.9 million project will see the existing fire station demolished and a smaller, fit for purpose and more energy efficient replacement, with much lower running costs, will take its place.

Based on the same site as the old one, construction on the new station began in May 2019.

Crews have remained completely operational throughout the work with a temporary appliance bay being created for the duration of the build.

So far, the existing six appliance bays have been demolished and the new two bay fire station has been built on the same area.

The two bays are adjoined with new welfare accommodation which includes a kitchen/dining space, office spaces and a gym area.  A new steel tower has also been installed at the rear of the drill ground.

But construction work isn’t complete just yet.

Now that the new station has been built, work can begin to demolish the former welfare building.

All work is expected to be fully complete by spring 2021.

The fire station has been designed and detailed by Bradshaw Gass & Hope and is being built by Marshall building contractors.

You can track the progress of the new station with updated photos below.
