Lambeth residents will get the chance to have their say on plans to close Clapham Fire station at a public meeting organised by the London Fire Authority and Mayor of London at 7pm, Thursday 16th May.
Leader of Lambeth Council, Cllr Lib Peck said,
“I urge everyone who is concerned about the threat to Clapham fire station to come along to the public meeting on 16th May at Lambeth Town Hall. This is an important opportunity for local people to tell Boris Johnson what they think of his proposal to close Clapham Fire station.
‘We know that closing Clapham fire station will threaten the safety of the public because the Fire Brigade have said the closure will add an average of 40 seconds to the time it takes a fire engine to reach an emergency. Thats why we are campaigning to save Clapham fire station from closure.”
The fire consultation meeting for Lambeth will be on Thursday, 16 May 7-9pm at Lambeth Assembly Hall, Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton Hill, London SW2 1RW. More: http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/LSP5-public-meetings.asp
