We have just heard a rumour that Rayleigh Fire Station is going to be closed and that the town will be covered in future from Hadleigh. Apparently an announcement will be made on Monday.
As we said – this is only a rumour , but we have heard it from two sources….
With a growing population and increasing traffic congestion, it’s hard to see how this can be justified…..
UPDATE Friday Evening: a good source tells us that the proposal is for Rayleigh and Hadleigh fire stations to both be closed and be replaced by a new ‘bells and whistles’ fire station at Rayleigh Weir.
This would be after public consultation and a planning application. So we aren’t going to comment further until we get more information.
