Activities are the amount and type of fire protection work carried out.

Total number of contacts made with non-domestic properties

Total number of consultations responded to for rate-paying non-domestic properties

In 2016/17 we made 7,910 contacts within the 34,845 non domestic properties within Derbyshire. This equates to 23% of the rate-paying non-domestic properties within the Service’s area.

These contacts maybe in the form of: 

  • a formal in-depth audit;
  • a simpler, quicker inspection;
  • provision of advice;
  • education of businesses. 

We use a targeted approach when carrying out fire protection activities and ensure all dealings with properties are relevant and proportionate to the risk we perceive the property presents to the community.

In 2016/17 there were 1,633 consultations responded to. 

Fire services respond to certain organisations when they require our expert opinion on fire safety matters. We receive consultation on Building Regulations applications for new buildings or alterations to existing buildings. 

Additionally, we are also consulted in respect of licensing applications and also occasionally in the case of planning applications.

It should be noted that the quantity of this work is driven by external demand.

This graph shows the trend for our interactions with properties in the last 4 years.
