Staines Fire Station - Public Meeting

A meeting to discuss Surrey County Council's proposals for the Fire Service in Spelthorne

In response to comments received from residents about the planned closure of Staines Fire Station, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee at Spelthorne Borough Council has arranged a meeting to discuss Surrey County Council's proposals for the Fire Service in Spelthorne.

Residents and interested parties from the local area are invited to attend the public meeting being held at 7.30pm on Tuesday 7 February at Spelthorne Leisure Centre, Knowle Green, Staines-upon-Thames.

The meeting will be chaired by Councillor Colin Davis from Spelthorne Borough Council. Representatives of Surrey County Council and the Surrey Fire and Rescue Service have been invited to attend. We are expecting the meeting to be very well attended so please arrive in good time as seats will be given on a first come, first served basis.

Residents who would like to ask a question at the meeting should email it in advance to the Committee Manager, Gillian Hobbs, at g.hobbs@spelthorne.gov.uk by 27 January. Due to the high number of questions expected there will only be time available to address questions which have been submitted in advance.

Cllr Colin Davis, Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, said: "This is an important issue of natural concern to local residents. The meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to express their concerns and the County Council Cabinet Members to explain the logistical background to what is obviously a controversial proposal."
