Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
It seeks views on amending Approved Document B to reduce the trigger height at which sprinkler systems would be required in new high-rise blocks of flats and asks for views on the trigger height options. It also seeks views on proposals to improve wayfinding signage within blocks of flats, and to install evacuation alert systems for use by fire and rescue services.
This consultation from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government runs from 5 September to 28 November 2019.
