Fire Brigade stages open day without mentioning £11m tower
Sshhh! Don’t tell everyone, but there’s another public consultation meeting arranged in Croydon where there’s been very little notice given, and no mention in official publicity of probably the most significant proposal affecting the area.
The London Fire Brigade has given just a week’s notice of an “open day” lasting just three hours at Croydon Fire Station to consult on the London Safety Plan.
Nowhere is it mentioned in the publicity for the open day that the 73-page plan includes proposals to build a six-storey smoke training tower at the fire station in Waddon, which the fire service intends to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The cynically inclined might suggest that the short notice of the one-off “open day” for a consultation is intended to make it as difficult as possible for as many people as possible to have any say in the matter whatsoever.
