Speedwell Fire Station


In January Avon Fire & Rescue Service announced plans to build three new fire stations, a new Headquarters and redevelop an existing fire station under its ‘Investing for the future’ programme.  As part of these proposals, they announced that Speedwell Fire Station will close and that services would be provided from Kingswood Fire Station instead.

On Thursday 20 March there will be a meeting at the Seminar Room at Cossham Hospital, Lodge Road, Bristol BS15 1LF from 3.00pm to 6.45pm, where there will be an opportunity to provide feedback on the proposals.

Details of the plans will also be available from Hillfields, St George and Kingswood libraries from Friday 21 March.
