Dear Rachael Venables

 

Freedom of Information Request ENQ- 451284-T8Q0T9  - Prohibition Notices

 

I refer to your request for information dated 5 January 2021

 

You asked for:

 

Since 14th June 2017, how many multi-occupancy residential buildings in
your authority have been served prohibition notices by the FRS or Council
due to Fire Safety concerns, with residents forced to leave?

 

If possible, please include as much of the following in the disclosure
relating to each incident

 

- The date of the order

 

- The address of the property

 

- The reasons given

 

- The number of individual units / homes affected (if they can provide
that)

 

 

Our response:

 

Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service as the enforcing authority of the Regulatory
Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 have not served any Article 31 Prohibition
Orders on multi occupancy residential buildings since 14^th June 2017.

 

I am afraid that the County Council does not hold the information that you
have requested relating to prohibition notices that are enforced by the
Housing Act 2004

 

I understand, however that you can obtain the information from
