CAMBRIDGESHIRE Fire and Rescue Service has said that one of its biggest challenges over the next year could be the building of a fire station in Cambourne.
In the fire authority's 2007/08 service improvement plan, one of the 15 priorities is to build a retained fire station at Cambourne with room a single fire engine.
The cost of the project will be £750,000, with £550,000 coming from developers.
A spokesman for Cambridge Fire and Rescue service told The Hunts Post that because the villages are a low risk area, a new station would focus on protection and prevention while emergency response would continue to come from Papworth.

Graham Stagg, assistant fire chief, said a fire station at Cambourne was very likely and if the plan was agreed, work could start this summer.
"A plot of land has been assigned next to Morrison's supermarket for a fire station. We have our plans developed and if agreed by the authority, work could start post May. The station at Cambourne would have the flexibility to provide an emergency response as and when the risk profile of the district changes."
