Fire Prevention Plan Guidance Consultation Published

Thursday October 2016

The Environment Agency (EA) has published responses to its consultation into the revised guidance for fire prevention plans for waste site operators.

The summary of responses comes almost two months after the revised guidance itself was published in the back end of July.

New Fire Prevention Plan guidance was published after a three month consultation with industry, local authorities, regulators and the general public.

The consultation saw an encouraging level of interest with responses received from a broad range of stakeholders (161 responses). These responses were fed into the decisions made by the EA when updating the guidance, it says.

It’s hoped the revised guidance will help reduce the numbers of fires at waste sites in England.
