Revised plan for station is attacked

First published in News

PLANS for a radical remodelling of Malvern’s fire station have come under attack from the town’s civic society.

And a leading member of the society is to speak out against the proposal when Malvern Hills District Council planners meet on Wednesday.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service wants to remove its distinctive triangular profile, adding flat-roofed extensions.

An earlier application was refused in July.

Bob Tilley, chairman of Malvern Civic Society's planning sub-committee, said: “The revised plans are little different from the original which the conservation officer said were akin to an industrial building.”

Does anyone else remember when they billy this station ? I seem to think it w award at the time for being the ugliest building in the country. Now they want to save it. It is an industrial building, do they want to make it look Victorian? Filtering that logic we need to go back tho Victorian fire engines aswell. Great plan.
