Health and Safety Certificate for Prestatyn Council Chamber, Municipal Office, Nant Hall Road

Denbighshire Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Denbighshire Council,

Could I ask Building Control for a .pdf copy of the Health and Safety Certificate for Prestatyn Council Chamber, Municipal Office, Nant Hall Road, or similar required Certification pertaining to a Denbighshire County Council public building. Allowing the public to attend.

Could this include the final certification and any list of improvements or recommendation required (previous or in future) to obtain certification.

Presumably the whole building is being certified and not the one Council Chamber room.

Yours faithfully,

MRS. BOURNE

All areas of this report will consider the relevant British Standards and Regulations. Particular reference has been made to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO).

Main Use of Facility:
The facility has been largely empty since September 2007. The Day Care Centre moved into the Ground Floor (front elevation) in December 2008, along with a small team of house wardens and the town manager. The housing wardens, town manager and site supervisor are co-located on the 1st floor. The Council Chambers, Stuart Jones Meeting Room and Mayors Parlour are used on a ad-hoc basis. The rest of the 1st floor and 2nd floor offices are empty. This FRA will have to be reviewed on the imminent arrival of an NHS Team in January 2010.

Facility Security:
This property is sited in the centre of Prestatyn, adjacent to the Library and in front of the main council building in Prestatyn, Ty Nant. This building is protected by an intruder/security system, which is linked to an out of hours call centre. Out of hours, all external windows and doors are secured and security alarms set by the Site Supervisor.

Facility Footprint & Area:
The total facility footprint is approximately 1,302 m2.

Facility Construction
Built originally in the early part of the 19th century as the town fire station, this building has gradually grown in size over the years, with the addition of two neighbouring properties (normal domestic houses), so the original building now encompasses two other properties which have been attached over the years, to increase the total size of the building. The main structural walls are of block and brick (cavity, internal block and plaster), with wooden framed (mainly single framed) windows. This building has three main entrance doors and a pitched roof. There are three staircases, of which only one is fire protected.
A lift is provided but should not be used for fire evacuation.
The lift room is located on the ground floor with the ICT Server Room, which are kept locked at all times.

Dear Denbighshire Council,

I believe; Facility Name: 6-8 Nant Hall Rd

Address & Postcode: 6-8 Nant Hall Rd, Prestatyn,

Assessment Date: 13/11/2009

Responsible person: - Nigel Highfield, Facilities Manager

Assessor(s): - Nigel Highfield TIFireE & John Dickson TIFireE

Was the title of document. As in the full reply.

Yours faithfully,

MRS. BOURNE

Denbighshire Council

Dear Mrs Bourne,

Following your request for us to review our previous response in connection with your request concerning Prestatyn Council Chamber I can advise you that we have now completed the review.

Your original request asked for:

Could I ask Building Control for a .pdf copy of the Health and
Safety Certificate for Prestatyn Council Chamber, Municipal Office,
Nant Hall Road, or similar required Certification pertaining to a
Denbighshire County Council public building. Allowing the public to
attend. Could this include the final certification and any list of
improvements or recommendation required (previous or in future) to
obtain certification.Presumably the whole building is being certified and not the one Council Chamber room.

Our response to you was that Building Control had not issued any certificate in relation to Prestatyn Council Chambers. The document you mention in your complaint is actually the Fire Risk Assessment for 6-8 Nant Hall, carried out by the Principal Facilities Manager. The Fire Risk Assessment is not a Health and Safety Certificate as originally requested and as a result the panel have upheld the original response to this enquiry.

If you remain dissatisfied with our response or have any concerns about the manner in which the Council has dealt with your request, you have the right to refer this to the Information Commissioner whose address is Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF who will consider your complaint.

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Nicola Samuel
