New fire station site for Cockburn

Consultation has concluded

The City of Cockburn is working with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) to identify a potential site for a new fire station, and now wants community input on the idea.

DFES has approached the City about a land swap which could see a new station built on part of the Cooper Street reserve and the existing Hammond Road fire station demolished and turned into netball courts.

DFES is also assessing other sites.

Cooper Street reserve is a piece of public open space, and best described as a passive natural reserve which provides separation between the residential area and the adjoining industrial area.

DFES is seeking 6000 m² of the 8739 m² Cooper Street reserve. It is believed that given the important community benefit derived from DFES having this facility, a community discussion is warranted.
