Chew Magna Fire Station will become home to local police and council officers after the agencies signed a partnership agreement.
The new agreement between the three organisations will see local beat officers from Avon and Somerset Constabulary and staff from Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council based at the fire station on Tunbridge Road.
The aim of the new partnership is to allow public service workers from the police and council to be closer to the communities they serve.
Chew Magna Station Manager for Avon Fire & Rescue Service (AF&RS), Rob Davis said the partnership has addition benefits for the fire and rescue service.
He said: “We already have good links with the police and council and I’m really pleased we are able to continue this work at Chew Magna.
“Ultimately we share the same aim – of keeping the community of Chew Magna safe and sharing our facilities will enable us to do this more effectively.”
