New £5 Million Fire Station To Come To Chester

A new £5 million fire station is due to be built in Chester on St Anne Street in Newtown, replacing the current building with a smaller but state-of-the-art facility.

According to the Chester Chronicle, the building will be home to a fire engine, boat and towing vehicle, an aerial platform and the prevention and protection team as well.

Bob Rudd, fire authority chairman, explained that the project is set to start in spring next year. The current building – which was opened by Prince Charles 46 years ago – is considered now to be too big, with very expensive running costs, and the new site will be more cost-effective and efficient to operate.

“The funding for the new building will come from a combination of reserves, borrowing and revenue from the sale of the land. We are all looking forward to the start of this exciting project for Chester and to watching the new fire station evolve from the ground up,” he went on to say.

Earlier in the year, it was revealed that plans to use the site to build student housing came unstuck after the developer withdrew its interest. According to the Chronicle, surplus land on the site – including the rear drill yard – was to be sold to serve as student accommodation to help generate a capital payment for the Cheshire Fire Authority.
