Employees at Snowdon Road Depot have recently benefitted from a modern upgrade to the facilities there.

The Council has invested much needed funds in completely renovating the office and workspace area at the Snowdon Road Depot with fantastic new modern facilities for all the employees that work from the location.

There is now a clean, efficient, and fit for purpose office, a canteen, meeting rooms, showers, toilets and dedicated drying room for staff who continue to deliver excellent services day in day out, no matter what the weather.

Councillor Roger Small, Chair of the Operational Management Committee said:

“The teams based at the depot have done fantastic work throughout the pandemic with no services being cancelled. Extra demands have been put on them throughout this time as these are the ‘dirty’ jobs we all depend on.”

“The old facilities were outdated with the staff working out of old portacabins which were cramped and without proper changing and drying rooms.”

“This is just one way of showing we value everything our staff do here at Fylde. We want to make sure they have the resources and facilities to continue the great job they do on our behalf.”

The main contract was undertaken by Parkinson’s Contractors with a total scheme capital budget of £414k. The redevelopment began in March 2021 and took 6 months to complete.

Initial feedback from the staff working from the new and improved depot has been fantastic and it is hoped the facilities will enable the employees to continue to feel valued whilst delivering efficient front-line services for the residents of Fylde.
