Old Town Fire Station Project

st ives community land trust former town fire station
Former Fire Station/St John’s Ambulance Station (And outbuildings) Behind the Parish Rooms off St Andrews Street is the old Fire Station, more recently used as the St John’s Ambulance Station. The building is now vacant and in need of some TLC. St Ives CLT is seeking to purchase the building from Cornwall Council, which owns the premises. The Council are allowing the CLT six months in which to raise the necessary funds. The date for the start of that six months has yet to be announced. It is a small space which would lend itself to use as an incubator for start-up and fledgling businesses seeking to get established. Creative industry could be encouraged here. We recently put in an offer for two small outbuildings which adjoin the Old Town Fire Station building.
