 High Rise Fire Training Facility - a UK First!
June 2014

Rob Duncan Planning Consultancy Ltd. was appointed last year by West Midlands Fire Service to secure planning consent for a new high rise training facility.  Over recent years the UK has suffered a number of fires in high rise buildings that have caused the deaths of fire fighters and members of the public, and this prompted West Midlands Fire Service to develop a bespoke multi-storey training facility at Oldbury Fire Station.  Pre-application discussions were held with a number of consultees, most notably the Council's Environmental Health Officer and the Highways Agency, and this led to the application being approved at the first attempt.  You can watch a video of the new high rise facility at the following weblink: Video
