St Albans ambulance station is to be relocated from its city centre position as the site’s owner is disposing of the property.
A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) confirmed today (Friday) that the station will relocate from Harpenden Road within St Albans.
He explained that the station is in leased accommodation and the site’s owner, Herts county council, has said that it is disposing of the property.
The council has made an offer to the trust to either maintain an ambulance station somewhere else on the redeveloped site, or accept a relocation sum to contribute towards moving to a new location.
The EEAST spokesman said that as the current station in a poor condition and not fit for purpose, “the trust has struggled to achieve full infection, prevention and control compliance.

“The building does not meet modern energy standards and offers poor accommodation for ambulance staff.
“Therefore the trust has agreed to move to a new location. Work has commenced to identify potential properties for relocation which will give the trust and staff a more suitable and modern facility to operate from.”
