Proposed Closure of Ashburton Fire Station

The Town Council has made a decision to oppose and campaign against cuts to the Fire Service, in particular the closure of Ashburton Fire Station.  Here you can read the letter sent on behalf of the Council to the members of the Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Authority.  

You can read the information put out by the Authority about the cuts and take part in the online consultation process here.  

If you find the consultation questionnaire unsatisfactory, you can express your views directly to the members whose contact details are here.

There is also the chance to find out more and express your opinion in person.  The poster below shows where.  The nearest venue is Ashburton (St Lawrence Chapel) on Monday 22 July between 10 am and 2 pm.  There is also a public meeting which has been arranged separately by the Fire Service personnel (not the Authority) at Ashburton Town Hall on 19th July.
