Milton Keynes Checks Over 999 Plans Today
The public have the opportunity to view and comment on the plans for the proposed "blue-light" hub development at West Ashland in Milton Keynes today, before planning approval is sought.
Earlier this year, Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority approved a proposal to merge Bletchley Fire Station and Great Holm Fire Station and to relocate them to the hub.
As well as a fire base, Thames Valley Police and South Central Ambulance Service would also share facilities.
Plans and artist's impressions, including this one, are on public display at Simpson Village Hall in Hanmer Road, Simpson, MK6 3AD until 7.30 this evening (Friday 8 July).
There will be an opportunity to speak to Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service's planning consultants and to ask any questions relating the proposed design.
Area Commander Paul Holland, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service's Head of Projects and Transformation, said:
"We are really pleased that we can finally show our staff and the public this exciting new facility that has been designed to complement the existing architecture in Milton Keynes."
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
