We are sorry that we are no longer accepting bookings for the community facilities at Hanley Fire Station. This follows the decision by the Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire and Rescue and Crime to bring police and fire and rescue together under one roof at Hanley Fire Station.
The plan is to relocate Staffordshire Police’s northern response team from its current base at Hanley Police Station, which no longer meets the force’s requirements, to the fire station. This makes operational sense and will improve the financial position of both organisations and enable funds to be put back into frontline services to benefit people who live and work in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. The Commissioner’s office is supporting police and fire and rescue teams to make this happen as soon as possible.
We are working with all local people and the community groups currently using the fire station to ensure the move takes place with as little disruption as possible and to help groups to identify alternative suitable accommodation which may include other Community Fire Stations.
While this work is taking place and alternative plans are being developed we are no longer taking bookings for the existing facilities. We are sorry for any inconvenience and will update you on the new arrangements as soon as possible.
