Ground Breaking Ceremony for £14M Blue-Light Hub


Ground Breaking Ceremony for £14M Blue-Light Hub


APRIL 2018

Work started on Thursday 12 April on a £14 million fire, police and ambulance campus in Milton Keynes.

Provisionally called the Blue-Light Hub, it is being built on a three-acre site at Thornbury, West Ashland. The three-storey complex, partly funded by a £2.8 million government grant, will be one of the first of its kind in the country and is due to open in autumn 2019.

A ground-breaking ceremony, led by Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lord-Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire, took place at the site this morning.

David Sutherland, Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority's Director of Finance and Assets, said: "It has always been important that Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service continues to evolve and that we continue to look at different ways of providing services along with our partners.

"The Blue-Light Hub represents an investment in the growing community of Milton Keynes for decades to come as it will free up a number of public estates in Milton Keynes for other use.

"The three blue-light services will work and train together, and we are future-proofing the building by making space available for use by other interested public service bodies. We will also be providing meeting rooms for community groups.

"As well as providing state-of-the-art facilities for the blue-light services, we hope the building will help us establish closer relationships with community groups and the public at large."
