Council to be notified of significant fire safety issues
A certifying authority is required to give written notice to the council in accordance with this clause if—an application has been made to the certifying authority for a complying development certificate affecting an existing building, andthe building is a class 1b, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 building, andat any time between the application being received and the issue of the complying development certificate, the certifying authority becomes aware (when carrying out an inspection or otherwise) of a significant fire safety issue with any part of the building.The notice—must describe the fire safety issue and the parts of the building affected by the issue, andmust be made within 2 days after the certifying authority becomes aware of the fire safety issue.However, the certifying authority is not required to give notice if the fire safety issue is being addressed—by the proposed development, orby a fire safety order, orby some other development consent (including a complying development certificate) that affects the building.To avoid doubt, this clause extends to a council that is a certifying authority.
