Willmott Dixon has been confirmed to build a new £21m fire service learning and development centre at Highwood Mill, near Horsham which includes a 24-hour fire station. The planning application will reach West Sussex County Council soon, and the designs will be exhibited to public by HNW Architects.
Duncan Crow(Cabinet Member for the Fire, Rescue Service & Communities) states “These are incredibly exciting plans. It has long been our aspiration to build a state-of-the-art training facility for our firefighters and these will be among the best facilities in the UK. It has also been a vision for more than a decade to create a new fire station for Horsham.
