Have your say on the draft fifth London Safety Plan

Closed 17 Jun 2013

Opened 4 Mar 2013


The Draft Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5) sets out how the fire and rescue service in London could be delivered over the next few years.  This consultation seeks views on a draft of the plan in order to help inform the decision making on what the final plan will include.

The corporate view of the Authority is that, while it has recorded its opposition to station closures, fire engine and staff reductions, it is consulting fairly on the draft LSP5 proposals which are subject to the Mayor's direction and will take into account responses to the consultation before making a decision.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to hear your views about the proposals in the  Draft Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5).

This consultation aims to:

  • Present proposed new headline targets for the London Fire Brigade (LFB) to Londoners and give you an opportunity to give your views.
  • Present proposed changes to the number of fire stations, fire engines and firefighter posts to Londoners and give you an opportunity to give your views.
  • Present proposals on specific policy areas to Londoners and the organisations likely to be affected by the changes and give you an opportunity to give detailed feedback.
  • Allow for full consideration of the views and feedback collected by the consultation during decision making on all proposals in LSP5.

What Happens Next

When consultation on the full plan is complete, all of the responses we have received will be analysed. A report will be prepared and considered by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) , who make decisions on the proposals in the Plan.

The report and the responses that are received will be made publically available.  We will not publish this data other than in a summarised (and anonymised) way.
