Plans for blue-light hub at West Ashland to go on display next month

Fri 24 Jun, 2016

The public will have the opportunity to view and comment on the plans for the proposed blue-light hub development at West Ashland in Milton Keynes next month, 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.

It will also be a base for Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, Thames Valley Police and South Central Ambulance Service to work together more effectively for the benefit of the local area.

Plans and artist's impressions, including the one above, will go on public display at Simpson Village Hall in Hanmer Road, Simpson, MK6 3AD, from 11am to 7.30pm on 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.”
