£1m of improvements planned for Grantham fire station

A bungalow with six bedrooms for wholetime firefighters, further parking spaces, a new fire training building and improved station facilities could all be created at Grantham fire station now that improvement plans have been submitted.

There will also be a number of improvements made inside the existing fire station, including refurbishment of the first floor and re-decoration throughout the main building.

The existing training facility would be demolished.

Lincolnshire County Council says that a drop-in session which was held at the station in August for local residents with plans of the proposed building work, received positive feedback.

Cllr Nick Worth, executive councillor for emergency services at the county council, said: “We’re investing in our fire stations so they are fit for purpose and make sure we can give a great service to our communities. Subject to planning, work is currently scheduled to start early in 2020 and be completed in summer 2020.”

The proposed work at Grantham fire station is likely to be completed in stages but is expected to be an investment of over £1 million.
