In accordance with the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988, local authorities are required to maintain a register of information concerning the issue of legal Notices. For the Fire and Rescue Authority this register will list Prohibition, Enforcement and Alterations Notices.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service maintain this Public Register, which is open to inspection by the public free of charge.
The Public Register may be viewed by accessing the search register on the CFOA (Chief Fire Officers Association) web site.
(In the 'Fire and Rescue Service Details' box, use the dropdown menu to select 'Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service' and then click 'Search'; this will reveal all Notices issued by Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, displaying the date of issue and the particulars of each Notice.)
There is a video on the CFOA (Chief Fire Officers Association) web site to help you to search the register should you need assistance.
Alternatively, you can contact the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service Protection (Fire Safety) Technical Department on 01473 260588.
Persons on whom notices are served have a right of appeal against an entry onto the Public Register which they think may reveal an industrial secret. Please refer to the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988 or contact the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service Protection (Fire Safety) Technical Department for further details about appealing an entry to the Public Register.
Notices will be held in the register for a minimum period of three years.
