Stakeholders consulted on fire station plans

AF&RS logoAvon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS) has consulted with key stakeholders on outline plans to build a new fire station at Hicks Gate near the Avon Ring Road.

It follows January’s announcement by AF&RS that it will build three new fire stations, a new Headquarters and carry out the major expansion of an existing fire station.

One of the proposals would see the closure of Keynsham and Brislington fire stations, with resources amalgamated at a new fire station in the Hicks Gate area.

On Monday 24 February invited representatives from a wide range of organisations and interest groups had the opportunity to provide their feedback on the plans for the new station. During the meeting representatives from Avon Fire & Rescue Service and Bath & North East Somerset Council discussed the outline proposals and invited comment from the interested groups.

Details of the plans are also available in Keynsham Interim Library and in Keynsham Town Hall window from Tuesday 25 February.
