Thornhill may get a new fire station
Thornhill could have
a new £30,000 fire station – if Dumfries and Galloway Regional Council gives the
go-ahead for a building program for next year.
At a meeting of the Public Protection Committee on Tuesday, members set the wheels in motion for the new station and there is also the possibility of another station at Moffat in the next few years.
The recommendation to approve the fire building program for 1976–77 will now go before the regional council meeting in the New Year.
But the original building program, approved by the committee in June, what shelved this week, when the committee heard that the Scottish Home and Health Department had deferred proposals to build stations at Annan and Gatehouse.
The committee had previously approved the building program for 1975–78 to include fire stations at Thornhill, Annan, Moffat and New Galloway.
