Fire Safety Plans for Houses in Multiple Occupation and Other Dwellings

31 Fire Plans in pdf form

Following changes under the Building Regulations and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, and the publication of the LACoRS national guidance on Housing - Fire Safety, the DASH Fire Safety Plans [20.71mb] guide has now been reviewed and updated to reflect the current best practice advice.

Thirtyone different floor plans have been considered for a fire safety scheme applicable to different categories of premises. In some cases, the same floor plan has been assessed with different occupancies e.g. single family and shared houses. This is to give an indication of the different risks that accompany different types of occupancy. The categories used for occupancy are:

The fire safety scheme for each plan offers a fire safety solution which could be applied to achieve a reasonable standard of fire safety. However, this is a guide and does not offer 'off the peg' solutions - alternative solutions are available. Provided that the principles and methodolgy of risk assessment and fire safety are applied, no additional works should be nexcessary to meet any of the requirements.
