Proposed New Fire Station - Blackley

Closed 13 Mar 2023

Opened 24 Feb 2023


Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service are having a major overhaul of some of its fire stations to make sure that they are fit for the future.

One of the stations that is being improved is Blackley. We are proposing to build a brand new fire station on the existing site over the next year.

If you want to know more before you complete this survey, then come to our drop-in session between 4.30pm - 7pm on Monday 6th March, at the current station in Blackley.  (Alternatively, there's more information on the GMFRS website - Station new builds - Greater Manchester Fire Rescue Service)

This multi-million pound investment in Blackley will mean that the local community will have a new environmentally friendly fire station close by.  

The plans for the new station will help GMFRS to provide  modern and  fit for purpose facilities, which are valued by the local community – this includes new community facilities such as a room that local groups and organisations will be able to use.

We’ve spent a lot of time over the last year talking to our partners and staff, but now we want to hear what the local community thinks.
