Dear County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service,

FOI Request - Number of High Rise Residential Buildings (HRRB’s) in your Authorities Area

I note that HRRB's were defined by the Hackett Report, as being “multi-storey multi-occupancy buildings” over 18m high (six floors and higher).

1. I would like to know the total number of High Rise Residential Buildings (HRRB's) within your area, known to FRS ?
2. I would like to know the total number of High Rise Residential Buildings (HRRB's) over 30m (ten floors and higher) within your area, known to FRS ?
3. I would like to know how many HRRB’s (of any height) known to the FRA have sprinklers installed?
4. I would like to know how many enforcement/alterations/improvement notices have been served on HRRB’s in your authorities area, since 2006, under the RR(FS)O 2005 legislation.
5. I would like to know how many full-time fire safety inspectors are employed by the Fire Authority?

Yours faithfully,
