Plans submitted to remodel Deeside Fire Station.
North Wales Fire Service are hoping to completely remodel Deeside fire station, Queensferry following the acquisition of the adjoining Ambulance Station from the Welsh Ambulance service.
The Fire Service are proposing to extend and refurbish the existing station bringing up to the compliant standard and size required for the current demands on the station, larger appliance bays will be created as well a larger administrative and operational areas.
The remodelling of the former Ambulance Station will provide accommodation for staff training together with facilities for partner agencies and the wide community.
Deeside Fire Station covers Deeside and the surrounding area. Due to its proximity to the border with Cheshire, Deeside crews also attend a number of cross border incidents.
The Station covers a number of sites of risk. Deeside Industrial Park is one of the largest industrial parks of its kind in Europe.
There are also a number of large factories within its catchment including Airbus, Toyota and Shotton Paper as well as three power stations.
The materials and colours chosen for the building reflect a modern, `high-tech’ building, to offer a break in the current simplistic surrounding brick buildings.
A decision on planning permission is expected towards the end of march, for the full set of the planning documents click here
