Fire Safety Unit
2 Marsham Street
This consultation follows on from the Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs) consultation, which ran from 8 June to 19 July 2021, and which we have today (18 May 2022) published the formal government response to.
The PEEPs consultation raised significant issues covering 3 broad areas – practicality, proportionality and safety, which means we are currently unable to mandate PEEPs in high-rise residential buildings. Our new EEIS+ consultation therefore seeks views on our alternative proposals to support the fire safety of residents who would need support to evacuate in an emergency.
It’s important that we receive as diverse and broad a range of views as possible to inform our approach, so welcome your engagement with this consultation. We are also running a number of workshops during the consultation period to discuss views in more detail. There are currently 4 workshops planned, to be held via Microsoft Teams:
- Tuesday 21 June, 2pm to 3.30pm
- Monday 4 July, 4pm to 5.30pm
- Friday 15 July, 11am to 12.30pm
- Wednesday 27 July, 5pm to 6.30pm
If you would like to attend a workshop please email email@example.com with your availability on each of the dates and we will send you a link to join the meeting.
We have included supporting documents below, which include an Impact Assessment, an Equalities Impact Assessment and a Privacy Information Notice.
