Evac Chairs and Refuge Areas in Purpose Built Block of Flats

Recommended Posts

I have been posed a question by a colleague who is carrying out an FRA on a purpose built block of flats in England.  There are 50 retirement flats in a building which has a stay put policy.  These are domestic premise on a leased tenancy.

Two of the residents have been identified as wheelchair users and the accommodation manager has requested a copy of a PEEPs template, however there is no provision of a refuge area with voice comms or any evac chairs.

Are these a requirement in a residential building with a stay put policy?

Anyone who answers this question, if you could please also provide a reference for it, it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.
