Blue light collaboration in Nottinghamshire takes another step forwardPlans for a joint police and fire HQ have taken a step forward with a planning application now submitted. light collaboration in Nottinghamshire takes another step forward<p>Plans for a joint headquarters between Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service have taken another significant step forward with the submission of a planning application for the development, based at Sherwood Lodge. The project aims to support the drive for increased efficiency, effectiveness and public safety between the two services.</p><p>It has been nearly a year since the decision was taken by both organisations to look at collaboratively working from the same site.   In that time, a full proposal has been developed for Sherwood Lodge, current home of Nottinghamshire Police HQ, offering facilities that meets future needs as well as strengthening the partnership between police and fire.  </p><p>The plans include the construction of a multi-functional building to house a new Police Control room, training centre, gym, multi-purpose hall and canteen, as well as the refurbishment of existing office buildings.  The application also sees the creation of additional parking to accommodate both organisations. </p><p>In addition to improving both services’ emergency response, the new facilities will improve the way staff are trained and provide enabling services to support the front line. Shared office accommodation, with meeting and conference facilities, will allow both groups of headquarters staff to work more efficiently and collaboratively together.  The proposed changes ensure that the principle of the Nottingham – Derby green belt has been retained</p><p>Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping said: "This is another step forward for the project and brings us even closer to realising our ambitions for a new state-of-the-art base for these two forward-thinking organisations. <br>"I'm very excited about the new facilities and to cement the strong partnership that already exists to improve our blue light services and increase our impact on public safety in the future." </p><p>Project Lead, Superintendent Paul Winter said: "The proposed Joint Headquarters will provide new flexible facilities that will serve the emergency services for many years to come.</p><p>"The Police have been at Sherwood Lodge since the 1970’s, it is an excellent geographic location to respond to incidents across the county, ensuring that we can get specialist resources such as firearms officers and dogs where they are needed to protect the public.”</p><p>“Developing a shared facility with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue will enable effective joint response to major incidents and it will also enhance our ability to work together.”</p><p>Nottinghamshire’s Fire and Rescue Service Assistant Chief Officer, Ian Pritchard, who is leading the whole programme, said: “This collaborative project offers a number of benefits that will not only improve the efficiency and effectiveness of both organisations, but will also bring us closer together to support the people of Nottinghamshire and continue to provide safer communities across the county. </p><p>“This investment will provide much needed facilities for Nottinghamshire’s Police and Fire services well into the future, and at the same time save money that can be re-invested in the front line services.”        </p><p>The decision on the planning application is expected by October 2019.  If successful the build should be completed towards the end of 2021.<br></p>

Joint Control Room for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Services Goes LiveA joint emergency 999 call Control Room for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s has gone live today. Control Room for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Services Goes Live<p>​A joint emergency 999 call Control Room for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s has gone live today.</p><p>In 2018 Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire’s Fire and Rescue Authorities both agreed the Joint Control Project, with Derbyshire chosen as the most viable location to meet the requirements for collaboration and Service delivery for both organisations. A year of business planning, preparation and consultation has followed to deliver a Joint Control for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire’s 999 call handling, based at Derbyshire’s Ascot Drive Community Fire Station. </p><p>The new Joint Control operates using the tri-service mobilising system, a system that Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire fire and rescue services have been using to handle emergency calls and mobilise crews to incidents since 2015. The tri-service system allows all three Services to mobilise across three county borders, with the ability to automatically call on the nearest fire engine, without the need to request its use if that fire appliance belongs to one of the other two Services.  </p><p>Therefore, the new joint Control only means a change of location for Nottinghamshire and it will not affect the level of service provided to anyone calling 999.  <br></p><p>Following comprehensive consultation and support for all affected staff, Nottinghamshire’s Control Room staff have been transferred to Derbyshire. No compulsory redundancies have been made as a result of the process.  </p><p>John Buckley, Nottinghamshire’s Chief Fire Officer, said: “In April, when we launched our new Strategic Plan, we outlined ten projects for Year 1, supporting our vision for creating safer communities across Nottinghamshire. This is the first to be delivered from that Plan. </p><p>“Introducing Tri-Service Control back in 2015 was about ensuring we continued to effectively function cross-borders, so that the nearest asset was mobilised to an incident, no matter where in the three counties that appliance happened to be.  This remains at the core of what we do, keeping our communities safe. Creating a joint Control room at Ascot Drive means a change of location but the function remains the same.   </p><p>“Full credit must go to our fantastic staff in our Control rooms who have fully engaged in this process.”    </p><p>Derbyshire’s Chief Fire Officer/Chief Executive Terry McDermott said: “The newly formed joint Control Room provides an efficient and effective emergency call handling service for the communities of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, the very communities whose safety is at the forefront of our decision making.  </p><p>“Bringing the two control rooms together will not affect the way 999 calls are handled, or the level of service people will receive when needing the fire and rescue service in an emergency.</p><p>“Through proactive prevention campaigning, over the past ten years nationally the fire and rescue service has successfully reduced the number of emergency incidents it attends. This has resulted in a reduction in the number of 999 emergency calls received and has therefore provided an opportunity for us to review the delivery of our call handling provision, to ensure it is as effective and efficient as it can be in line with the demand for service from our communities.   </p><p>“I’d like to take this opportunity to praise all the control room staff, from both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, who have worked closely with the project team to deliver the joint control project and more importantly, I’d like to welcome our new colleagues from Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire.” <br></p>
