New Redditch Police and Fire Hub on track for Autumn completion

Redditch Editorial 9th Jul, 2024   0

THE NEW combined police and fire hub in Redditch is nearing  completion.

The flagship joint-hub project in Middle House Lane, bringing both police and fire under one roof, has been led by Police and Crime Commissioner  (PCC) John Campion in partnership with Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS).

Mr Campion said: “I’ve been very clear that when facilities do not meet the needs of local communities, I will take action.

“It’s encouraging to see the rapid development of a fit-for-purpose hub that will allow our services to deliver for the public.

“Investing in this building for both the force and fire service shows my commitment to ensure police officers in Redditch are based at the very heart of the communities they proudly serve.”

Supt Mel Paley, North Worcestershire LPA Commander, said: “I’m delighted the new police and fire hub remains on track to be delivered by the end of this year.




“This new building will give our officers a modern platform with the very latest facilities and resources to protect and serve the people of Redditch.

“We look forward to moving in and making it our home as we continue our duty to keep residents safe 24/7.”


Ade Elliott, Assistant Chief Fire Officer at HWFRS, said the service had an ambitious property programme and Redditch Fire Station was part of that plan.

“Following project approval by the Fire Authority we have worked extremely hard with the PCC and West Mercia Police to deliver this new facility, and this project is testament to what collaboration can achieve,” he added..

“This new joint facility will enable HWFRS to continue to deliver our core strategies of ‘Prevention, Protection and Response to the community’.

“The fire service, and of course local firefighters, are eager to move into the new building when completed later this year.”
