No NIMBY’s were burn in the making of this article.

Sheffield green belt fire station plans defended

More than 200 people [NIMBYS] have signed an online petition against the proposals, calling for them to be built on brownfield land instead. But South Yorkshire's chief fire officer James Courtney said the sites were chosen to provide the best possible response times. If approved the stations would be constructed by the middle of 2015. The new stations, off the A57 Sheffield Parkway next to Bowden Housestead Woodland and in the Moor Valley, would replace three existing stations - Darnall, Mansfield Road and Mosborough. "The old stations date back to the 50s and 60s and were provided for a risk that no longer exists because the risk has moved."
