AN ambulance station will be built on the site of Liverpool's former council chambers destroyed by fire more than three years ago.
At their last meeting the council voted to remove a confidentially agreement which barred councillors from discussing a deal with NSW Health Infrastructure to sell the site for a NSW Ambulance station.
A council report said the station would be one of eight "key ambulance hub stations" planned for the area.
Cr Anne Stanley said it was a relief to be able to talk about the deal, which had become public knowledge despite the confidentiality agreement.
The site, located at 1 Hoxton Park Road, was home to the council's chambers from 1987 until the building was burnt down in a suspected arson attack in August 2010.
Liverpool mayor Ned Mannoun said the council got a good deal, receiving a payment of $7 million.
He said the council still planned to find new permanent council chambers but that was a work in progress at the moment.
A Health Infrastructure spokeswoman said the old council site and arterial road access met their requirements.
"Securing the site is an important first step in a long-term program, to be followed in due course by the necessary planning," she said.
