The RNLI are planning a revamp of their current station which has stood proudly for 115 years but is no longer able to accommodate growing needs. The expected plans include improved changing facilities, a better visitor experience for public-safety training, a new shop, plus a two-storey block for the Inshore garage. Over the years the duties of the station have expanded and now consist of the Torness-based All-weather Lifeboat (AWB), the Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) and thirty volunteers. 

The building plans will take some time to be finalised and will then be presented to the local authority in a few months for approval or modification.
