Station New Builds

As part of the £38million estates investment that was approved in 2021, three new fire stations are being proposed to be built over the next year, on the existing sites of current stations.

The proposed new fire stations will be:

  • Blackley in Manchester
  • Whitefield in Bury
  • Stockport (King St)

This multi-million pound investment will provide modern and environmentally friendly stations with a reduced carbon footprint. The plans for each station include the installation of sustainable heating and lighting systems. This will also help with the city-region’s target for Greater Manchester to become carbon neutral by 2038.

We want the new fire stations to provide a positive and engaging presence in their local communities – a place for people to visit with community facilities such as a room that local groups and organisations can use.

With all three proposed stations there will be no reduction in fire engines that are based there nor any reduction in firefighting capabilities. This means that our response times to emergencies will be unaffected.

Later on in this phase, there are also proposals for new fire stations in Whitehill in Stockport and Heywood in Rochdale.

How to get involved

We’ve been talking to partners and staff about the new fire stations over the last year, but now we want to hear from members of the public ahead of submitting plans to the various local authorities.

To give us your views on proposals for the Blackley and Whitefield stations, please feedback by Monday 13th March 2023. You will be able to feedback on plans for Stockport Fire Station in Spring 2023.
