Proposed New Fire Station, Ashford

We received a consultation from Surrey County Council for a new fire station on the Grazing Land, Opposite Ford Close, Kingston Road, Ashford.  The proposal is for the following:

Construction of new single storey fire station with access from A308 Staines Road West, incorporating two double appliance bays, dormitories with ancillary facilities, office accommodation, operational areas and store rooms; drill tower and smoke house; proposed hard standing for training, car parking and refuelling point for appliances; associated generator and oil storage tank; retention of existing rail timber fencing on north and eastern boundary of the site and the erection of 3m high acoustic fencing on the south, west and part of the northern boundary.

This authority is  a consultee only and the application will be determined by Surrey County Council as the fire service is a county function.  Surrey County Council notified local residents of this proposal and invited comments.  Details of the proposal may be viewed on the County Council's website - SCC ref: 2015/0243.

Details are also available on our own website under 15/01590/SCC (Spelthorne Borough Council's consultation reference). Alternatively, a hard copy of the documents may be inspected at Spelthorne Borough Council Offices during normal office hours.
