Consultation on New Prescot Fire Station

By on Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Whiston_fire_stationMerseyside Fire and Rescue Authority want residents’ views on a new fire station for Prescot.

The proposed building, on Manchester Road, would replace both Whiston and Huyton fire stations. The MFRA say the merger plans are due to central government cuts of £20 million, with potentially another £20 million by 2020.

Two public consultations are coming up for residents of Prescot, Whiston and the rest of Knowsley.

Merseyside fire chief Dan Stephens will speak and take questions at a breakfast event on Monday 16 June at Huyton Civic Suite, starting at 8.30am. Light refreshments will be served, and anyone with an interest in the proposed merger is welcome.

Click here to sign up for the event (password Knowsleybreakfast1606).

All are also welcome to a public meeting at St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Centre for Learning in Whiston on Tuesday 17 June at 6pm.

Alternatively, complete this short online survey to register your views on the proposals.

    rather than a ‘breakfast event’ at 0830, which few, if any, residents will attend, how about a leaflet drop to make people aware?

    We get loads of leaflet drops when local elections come around?
