Work underway on Plumstead fire station extension

Work is now well underway on plans to extend Plumstead fire station on the High Street.

As covered last year, plans look excellent and will see fire engine access moved to face the High Street rather than Lakedale Road.

New build

There were prior suggestions the fire station may move closer to the one-way system around the bus garage which the extension puts to bed.

A London Fire Brigade report stated: “The most recent decision in November 2015 by the former London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA FEP 2527) agreed to secure land at Griffin Manor Way for a new build fire station”.

Existing appliance entrance

Peabody then chose not to progress that plan. Another idea for a site on Nathan Way came to nothing.

Before becoming a wasteland for many years, the site of the extension was formerly a bakers.

Proposed changes

Renovations will also be undertaken on the existing fire station dating from 1907 alongside the creation of a community space.

A London Fire Brigade report listed the Grade II listed building as being the sixth worst in London.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
