Strong hint that Louth Ambulance Station could stay open

A STRONG hint has been dropped to suggest plans to close Louth Ambulance Station could be scrapped.

East Midlands Ambulance Service now say any compelling evidence arising from future consultations could see proposals revised.

EMAS had announced plans to close all but 13 stations in Lincolnshire, including Louth and Mablethorpe, in order to run from central locations like Skegness and Lincoln and 131 ‘tactical deployment units’.

Opposition has been voiced locally against the plans to close the station on Louth’s Fairfield Industrial Estate, with local resident Jackie Featherstone launching an online campaign to save the facility.

EMAS chief executive, Phil Milligan said: “All feedback received from our consultation exercise will be considered and if the evidence is compelling, we will consider revising our proposals.

“We encourage everyone to study the information we’ll provide as part of the public consultation exercise, and when they are in possession of the facts, to then take a view on our proposals.”
