Consultation on New Facilities for Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service at Holywell Business Park, Southam
Warwickshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service are asking residents for their views on exciting plans for a new training facility at Holywell Business Park, Southam. The facility will incorporate a new state of the art training facility together with a new fire station to serve Southam and the surrounding area. This will replace the existing fire station site on Coventry Street.
We are holding a consultation on the proposals to inform residents and listen to their views to help us shape our scheme.
Information on the proposals and what the new facilities will look like are included on our banners and in our newsletter. These can be downloaded here:
Why are new facilities required?
Training facilities for Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service are currently located in Bedworth and Dunchurch, but these sites offer limited ability to provide full training services. Warwickshire’s Fire and Rescue Service provide a high level of training in fire safety, but the limited facilities mean that people have to travel outside of Warwickshire to gain access for additional essential training which is a requirement of their job. The proposed training centre will mean that our firefighters have access to a bespoke training facility right here in Warwickshire.
Where will the facilities be located?
The site is an undeveloped plot of land located within the Holywell Business Park. It is accessed from Northfield Road. The buildings surrounding the site are used for commercial purposes, with the nearest residential properties being some distance away.
Have Your Say…
As an integral part of this process, we are inviting you to take part in this consultation. We welcome your views and all viewpoints will be taken into account in finalising the proposals. Feedback can be given in the following ways;
