Fire Safety



We have the responsibility to enforce sections 71 & 72 of the Building Act 1984 regarding the provision of satisfactory means of escape from certain use of existing buildings. Priority has been given to those uses considered to be high life risk where other legislation is not available, for example flats and apartments and retail outlets.
