Suffolk Constabulary and Suffolk Fire and Rescue plan to build a new joint Fire and Police Station in Stowmarket at the junction of the A1120/B1113 Needham Road.
On this page you will find detail of the project and supporting images. We will be very happy to hear your views on the plans and answer any questions you may have. This on-line consultation will be open until 6pm on Sunday 19th July.
This planned shared station at Stowmarket will be the first new-build project to be undertaken to date. All other schemes so far have been refurbishment and extensions on existing Fire Station sites. Plans for the new shared facility to be built on land to be purchased from PPG on the junction of the A1120/B1113 Needham Road, will provide excellent access to the main A14 arterial road network as well as access to the local road network in and around Stowmarket itself.

Funding for the project will be shared between the two services along with support from the government, which has already been secured. The ongoing partnership has enabled 11 other Fire Stations in Suffolk locations to be jointly shared between these two blue light organisations making Suffolk pioneers of such collaboration and is already proving to be a success with both operational and support staff.
