Snainton Consultation

This consultation has closed.

You can see information presented to the Fire Authority at their December 2012 meeting here 


Following a review of the Service’s fire and emergency cover, senior managers are undertaking a public consultation over the viability and possible closure of Snainton fire station and the potential redeployment of affected personnel.

I want to reassure the public that this is not a money saving exercise; it is the product of an objective review of fire cover requirements for the Snainton area brought about by the current station having reached the end of its serviceable life.

This consultation is open to everyone from 2nd July and will last for a minimum of 12 weeks. No decisions will be taken until responses to this consultation have been carefully considered by the Fire Authority. 

Various consultation activities will be held in the Snainton area during the consultation period, full details of which will be publicised locally and here in due course.

 Thank you for taking the time to visit this consultation page.

Summary of Incidents and Risk Analysis

IRMP Map 1

IRMP Map 2

The black lines on the IRMP maps indicate the fire station area boundaries. The fire station area is that area where the first fire engine arriving at an emergency would normally be from that station. (If that station was unavailable then the first fire engine would come from the next nearest station). The stations themselves are the three black letters in the white boxes (SNAinton, SHErburn, FILey, SCArborough, ROBin Hoods Bay, GOAthland, PICkering and KIRbymoorside).

The coloured areas on the maps represent the risk areas. The risk bandings are green for the lowest risk, then yellow, then amber and red is the highest risk. Each area is a standard government statistical area, which is used for making comparisons between different areas. These areas (super output areas or SOAs) do not correspond exactly with the station boundaries. An area on the map of one colour may contain several SOAs. For example the green patch in the southern area of Snainton’s station area and into the western part of Scarborough’s area is actually 3 SOAs, all of which are green in terms of risk (i.e. the lowest category).

IRMP Map 1 shows the emergencies that the fire engine from Snainton has attended. IRMP Map 2 shows the emergencies within the Snainton station area.

Snainton Area Current Map

Snainton Area Proposed Map

The coloured areas indicate the time within which a fire engine would get to an emergency from the time the station is notified of an emergency. The times assume a fire engine is on station.

For clarity and comparison the current Snainton Fire Station area boundary is shown on both maps. However in the ‘Proposed’ map the situation would be that the Snainton area would be covered by appliances from Sherburn, Pickering and Scarborough, whichever was the nearest.
