Keynsham's former fire station

Bid made to buy former fire station for the community

A bid has been submitted to buy Keynsham’s former fire station and turn it into a community centre.

Keynsham Town Council hopes to purchase the Temple Street site and redevelop it for residents’ use in a £3 million scheme.

The fire station was put on the market by Avon Fire and Rescue last month, with agents Alder King asking potential buyers to submit their best bids by April 28, with the council and other bidders now awaiting the outcome.
