PLANS for a new fire station in Hereford will be on show at a ‘drop in’ event on Wednesday May 14.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service is looking to replace its current St Owen Street station, and will be showcasing its ideas ahead of a formal planning application.

Last month Herefordshire Council approved a land swap deal for the fire station’s current site, that would see the council’s Bath Street offices demolished and a new base built on the site.

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority has said a new Hereford fire station is a priority as the present station is not fit for present and future operations.

The fire service is now calling on residents to check out the proposals, ask any questions and give their views in order to help it form a final design.

The drop in will be at the Hereford fire station between 2pm and 8pm, with visitors asked to access the building via Daws Road.
