To be clear as local councillors we strongly believe the old workshops behind the fire station on The Embankment need to be re-developed and we welcome the renovation of the fire station and the retention of a working fire station (once threatened with closure). We also believe the creation of a new Fire Station Museum will be a positive addition to the area.
What we object to is the scale of the development, the effect it will have on local residents and the lack of ‘affordable’ housing in the scheme. Cllr. Amos and I have been working with local people to get the plans changed and here is the leaflet they are putting out if you’d like to know more.
