Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans

Following the Fire Safety Consultation, which ran from 20 July to 12 October 2020, we are seeking views on new proposals to implement the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 recommendations on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans in high-rise residential buildings.

The government is determined to continue to learn the lessons from the Grenfell Tower fire to ensure that such a tragedy can never happen again.

It is important that we get this right and ensure the voice of residents and those likely to be affected by the proposals are heard.

This new consultation contains proposals to implement the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 Report recommendations on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans, also known as PEEPs, that require a change in law to place new requirements on owners or managers of multi-occupied high-rise residential buildings.

This consultation supports delivery of two of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 recommendations and is part of the government’s package of reforms to improve building and fire safety in all regulated premises where people live, stay or work.

You can also read the concluded Fire Safety consultation and the government’s response.

Below is a full package of documents to support this consultation. Alongside this consultation document we have published for reference the impact assessment and an equality impact assessment.
