Step inside new Lincoln emergency services hub

It’s a joint project to bring the police, fire and rescue and ambulance services together

Take a look around Lincoln’s ongoing blue light headquarters, which will house the police, fire and ambulance services together in in the city centre.

It is expected to open in September 2019 and save on running and maintenance costs from running three separate buildings.

The emergency services hub is being built at South Park, close to the Sincil Bank football stadium.

Lincolnshire County Council estimates that the new building will cost less to run than the police station on West Parade alone.

Existing buildings used by the emergency services in Lincoln need millions of pounds spending on them to make them fit for purpose both now and in the future.

The new station will feature a three storey building, with service specific office space, operational accommodation and shared areas.

As previously reported, the project was given the go ahead in October 2017 with a budget of £17 million.

It has attracted £7 million in national government funding and reflects a drive for closer collaboration between emergency services.

The scheme, dubbed the ‘Blue Light Collaboration Programme’, has already seen the fire service move its headquarters in with the police in Nettleham.
