Fire: Commercial and Domestic Planning Applications

Written by RSS Poster Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service

When a planning application is submitted to the local Planning Department the Fire Service are consulted and where relevant, invited to make comment on the appropriate
fire safety requirements for the application.

The Fire Safety Guidance for Commercial and Domestic Planning Applications handbook, available for download, provides an easy reference guide to the requirements and recommendations of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.

This reference guide is designed to provide general information and guidance in relation to your application. However, in some circumstances the minimum requirements of the building regulations may not be sufficient to meet the fire risk profile of the building (i.e. where the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 applies).
