sea point fire station

The much-awaited restoration of our Fire Station is finally underway. This project, long overdue and eagerly anticipated, represents a significant milestone in our efforts to preserve an essential landmark in Sea Point.

Ward 54 Ward Councillor, Nicola Jowell, shared the positive update on Facebook, highlighting the journey to reach this point. Despite initial legal hurdles causing delays, diligent efforts and consultations have ensured that the restoration project is now back on track, with necessary approvals secured.

The restoration project holds multiple objectives, foremost among them being the rejuvenation of a vital community asset. The aim is to restore the Fire Station to its former glory, ensuring it stands as a beacon of pride for generations to come. Additionally, the project seeks to provide a conducive and comfortable working environment for our heroic firemen, who serve our community with dedication and valor.

With the contractor poised to commence work this week, the project will encompass a range of tasks, including installing a new roof, repairing and replacing guttering, painting, and addressing electrical and plumbing needs. The focus will initially be on external renovations, with internal work to follow suit. As expected with such endeavours, scaffolding will be erected, and there may be occasional disruptions on the pavements outside, given the already bustling nature of the area.

Importantly, residents can rest assured that the ongoing restoration work will not impact the functioning of the fire and rescue service in any way. Safety and service continuity remain top priorities throughout the project duration.

As members of the Sea Point Fresnaye Bantry Bay Ratepayers & Residents Association (SFB), let us celebrate this milestone and extend our support to the restoration efforts. Together, we are ensuring the preservation of our community’s heritage while enhancing the infrastructure that serves us all. Stay tuned for further updates as this exciting project progresses.
