The Future of Leadhills Community Fire Station

Closed 18 Aug 2023

Opened 10 Jul 2023


The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) is holding a public consultation to seek views on the future of Leadhills Community Fire Station. The station is under review due to incident data, recruitment challenges, building maintenance and best value. Since February 2015, Leadhills Community Fire Station has not been operational.  A decision on the future of the station will be based on robust data, delivering community safety, best value and feedback from the community.

SFRS is consulting on two Options:

  • Reinstatement of full operations
  • Closure of the fire station

Your input is invaluable to us and we would like you to give us your views by 18 August, 2023. Please take part in our survey which will only take a few minutes to complete.  You can read the detailed considerations behind each Option in our information pack here.

Why your views matter

In deciding the future of Leadhills Community Fire Station, we want to ensure that we capture the views of our stakeholders – including people who live in Leadhills and the surrounding area. Importantly, we want to see if there any alternative options we haven’t considered in looking at the future of the fire station.

What happens next

At the end of the consultation period, all the feedback will be collated and analysed before a full report is prepared for the SFRS Board to consider in September, 2023.

As a responsible employer, SFRS will liaise with employees who are directly impacted by any decision and representative bodies. We will also inform the local community, and key stakeholder partners.
