Wicklow County Council indicate tenders being sought for two new fire stations in Wicklow

The new fire stations are planned for Dunlavin and Baltinglass.

Plans for the fire stations were announced in 2021 as part of a €2 million funding package, with sites being designated for the proposed projects.

At this month’s Wicklow County Cuncil meeting, Cllr Edward Timmins asked for an update on the plans for both fire stations, worrying the the projects had ‘been forgotten’ since their announcement.

Director of Services Leonora Earls said that they were engaging with both crews in order to design facilities that best served their needs, and that rising costs for development were being discussed. She then said that they were engaging with the department and would hope to be going out to tender for the building of the new stations.
