Northumberland County Council should shelve its £40 million + move of its HQ to Ashington and save Haydon Bridge Fire Station
The decision to close the Fire Station is clearly not supported locally and the fire station have played a crucial role in helping flood victims this last month. The Local Authority should think again - if they did not proceed with their insane decision to move from a perfectly serviceable building in Morpeth to a £40 million + new build in Ashington [which of course is even further away from Tynedale] then this decision would not be going ahead. This is all about choices and the Labour NCC are choosing Ashington over Haydon Bridge. I could not be at the meeting in the school last night because I was in the House of Commons in Westminster but I support the Haydon Bridge Fire Station. The local authority must think again.
