Plans for new fire stations in Lichfield and Chase Terrace up for discussion

Lichfield Fire Station

Lichfield Fire Station

People living in Lichfield and Chase Terrace are being urged to help shape the future of their fire stations.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is planning to rebuild the stations as part of a £50million project to redevelop ten sites across the county.

The consultation events will take place on November 4 at Chase Terrace Fire Station and at Lichfield Fire Station on November 11.

Assistant Area Commander for Lichfield, Dermot Hogan said:

“This is fantastic news for Lichfield, Chase Terrace and the surrounding areas. We are still in the early stages of planning these new facilities, but our vision for these new fire stations is to make them community embracing.

“The consultation events will give the public and members of local organisations the chance to influence the shape of the new stations with regards to their design and how they are used.”

At each of the events, local businesses are invited to attend between 4pm and 6pm, with residents welcome from 6.30pm to 8pm.

For more information call 01785 898671 or email pfiproject@staffordshirefire.gov.uk.

    If the word “NEW” is correct and not just code for a face lift – should we be asking – is it in the correct place opposite a hotel?

    With all that open space a few doors down the road – long term – would it be better to use that area combined with the friaresgate area for a really nice shopping development?
    With indoor train/bus facilities.

    That’s a buzz word filled pointless lot of drivel right there. Does anyone want “community embracing” fire stations? Does anyone even know what a community embracing fire station is?

    I feel I can answer for pretty much everyone the question about how the fire stations should be designed and how they should be used – Purpose built buildings for basing people and equipment that make up what we call the fire service.

    Am I the only person who finds it worrying that the assistant Area commander for Lichfield has to ask these questions?

    ” Does anyone even know what a community embracing fire station is?” I know – it is “Male Bovine Waste Product”. Is it true that the conversations went something like this “Can we have money for Lichfield?” “yes here it is.” “Thanks” “what are you going to do with the money?” ” Well er er – you can’t expect me to know on my salary scale I guess I will have to ask someone!”?
