New Blackley Fire Station given the all clear

Manchester City Council has approved the planning application for the replacement fire station on Rochdale Road, part of Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s broader £38m revamp of first responder facilities.

Under the signed-off plans, the current Blackley Fire Station will be demolished and replaced with a modern two-storey structure.

This new building has been designed to be environmentally friendly, with sustainable heating and lighting systems installed. Harley Haddow is assisting with the energy efficiency designs.

In addition to a 9,700 sq ft new fire station, the project includes a training yard, training tower, wash area, and parking for 11 vehicles. Of those 11 car parking spaces, one will be a designated disabled bay and four will have electric vehicle charging capability.

Architect Bradshaw Gass & Hope designed the approved plans for GMCA. LK Group and Pennine Ecological are also on the project team. ISG is the main contractor.

In addition to Blackley, GMCA is looking to rebuild the Whitefield, Heywood, King Street, and Whitehill fire stations.
