To ask the Scottish Government how much the fire training facility at Newbridge will cost, and by what date it will open.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 29 November 2017
The costs of the fire training facility will be market tested by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) prior to commencement of the works. The SFRS estimate that the cost will be between £11m and £12m.
Planning permission for this project has not yet been fully granted by the City of Edinburgh Council but SFRS anticipate that the facility will be operational by the summer of 2019.
