Hi and thank you for letting me join.
This may have been covered already so please forgive me.
I represent a local community group in Scotland and we have recently been given sole use of premises which we aim to use as a food pantry, school holiday lunch club and a cooking on a shoe string kitchen where we will educate people on how to prepare and cook simple meals on a low budget. This will have a need to prepare and cook food in an already established kitchen and will of course have a need for table top hot plates and ovens etc. The premises are part of a community hall which is well over 100 years old and is up a flight of stairs and on the 2nd level. The premises have only one way in and one way out which is onto a public car park. Can I ask if the main entrance to the premises can be used as a means of an escape due to the nature of the intended use?
