Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Consultation at Kinver Fire Station

Residents and the local business community are invited to shape the future of Kinver Fire Station.

"We want to consider all views on specification, aesthetics and what additional facilities should be included."

Keith Stubbs, Area Commander for South Staffordshire

As part of a ten station multi-million pound project, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is planning to redevelop the facility on Fairfield Drive.

Funding for the scheme is through a Private Finance Initiative (PFI). A final decision on the Service’s bid is due shortly. In preparation, people are invited to attend a consultation event at Kinver Fire Station on Monday 29th March where they will learn more about the proposed scheme.
 
The new building, to be known as Kinver Community Fire Station, would stand on the current site.

Keith Stubbs, Area Commander for South Staffordshire, said: "I am very pleased that Kinver is being considered for a new fire station, following a multi-million pound Private Finance Initiative bid.

"The consultation event will give the public and members of local organisations the
chance to influence the shape of the new station with regards to its design and how it is used.

"We want to consider all views on specification, aesthetics and what additional facilities should be included."

The consultation event at Kinver Fire Station will be split into two sessions. The first which will run from 4pm to 5.30pm is for partners and businesses. A public event runs from 6pm to 8pm.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service staff and the team managing the project will be in attendance to take questions from the floor. South Staffordshire Council planning officers will also be in attendance and will be available to answer questions.

Interested parties who are unable to attend the event but would like to be involved in the consultation process should telephone 01785 898516 or email: r.haigh@staffordshirefire.gov.uk.
