IN TODAY'S GAZETTE: Colchester's fire station to be replaced
8:57am Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
COLCHESTER fire station is set to close and be replaced by two smaller out-of-town stations.
Chief fire officer David Johnson says the £1.8million cost of upgrading the fire station in Cowdray Avenue is too much, and it's in the wrong place for Colchester's expanding population.
He wants to open two smaller fire stations - one in the north and one in the south - or use existing out-of-town sites.
