Statement of Principles - Introduction

The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 impose duties on certain landlords of residential premises in respect of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. These regulations are enforced by local housing authorities and allow for the imposition of a penalty charge if a landlord fails to comply with a remedial notice served by the authority.

Local Housing Authorities are required to prepare and publish a Statement of Principles which it must have regard to in determining the amount of a penalty charge.

Stevenage Borough Council will have regard to this statement when determining the amount of a penalty charge and may revise and republish the statement when necessary.
