Dear Ms. Fiorino,

Thank you for your helpful response to my recent request. You state that some premises were issued with two enforcement types. Please could you clarify the instances where two enforcement actions were applied to the same building?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Enquirer,

 

Your request for information has been processed under the Freedom of
Information (FOI) Act 2000.

 

The first duty of the Fire and rescue Service in responding to your
request is to inform you whether or not the Service holds the information
you have requested.

 

I can confirm that Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service does hold the
information.

 

In response to your enquiry below, to clarify the information previously
provided to you in relation to FOI 1044 I can confirm that there were 3
premises where there were 2 enforcement actions:

 

FP001343    The Zenith Building         26 Colton Street Leicester LE1
1QA           Enforcement Notice & Interim Measures     13/07/17

FP900562    Block C Merlin Heights     65 Bath Lane Leicester LE3 5AU     
         Enforcement Notice & Interim Measures         27/07/17    

FP900578    Block A Merlin Heights     95 Bath Lane Leicester LE3
5AU               Enforcement Notice & Interim Measures        
05/07/17    

 

Two enforcement outcomes were needed because Interim Measures is an action
that is issued by the fire service to prevent a higher level of
enforcement – a Prohibition Notice. This means the premises has to take
immediate action/provide measures  to reduce the danger to acceptable
levels to prevent the prohibition. An Enforcement Notice is then issued so
that the premises can address factors where the premises is not compliant
with the Fire Safety Order. This notice provides timescales to which the
premises needs to address the issues by. This is a legal notice.

Unless otherwise stated, the information provided in response to this
request is made available under the Open Government Licence:
