The London Fire Brigade has been granted permission for its plans for a brand new 3 bay fire station on Knights Hill. The independent planning inspector listened to arguments from local people and councillors but decided “ in a finely balanced decision… the need for a replacement fire station… outweighs the loss of residential accommodation and the projected additional noise levels”.
The building at 210 Knights Hill is owned by Maudsley Hospital and is currently squatted. The building will be demolished to make way for the new fire station.
We will post any further news on the timetable and plans for the existing fire station on Norwood Road as soon as we get it.
