PLANS to rebuild Purley's fire station have been approved.

Croydon Council has given the thumbs-up to knocking down the building in Brighton Road and replacing it with a three-storey building, drill tower and car parking.

The new station will include enough room for two crews, a gym, and a host of other amenities.

London Fire Brigade Assistant Commissioner Andy Hickmott said: "The rebuilt state-of-the-art facility will not only provide a fire station with better training provision for firefighters, but community facilities which will allow members of the public to more easily access vital lifesaving fire safety advice."

The project is part of a £57 million private finance initiative to rebuild nine stations across London.

Construction is planned to start in June 2014 and will last about a year.

Purley's fire engine will be stationed in Mitcham during the rebuilding work.
