Communal Areas

Following discussions with Islington Council and advice from the London Fire Brigade, Partners has introduced a “clear and safe” approach to items left in internal communal areas.

This approach should ensure that the common parts are free of combustible material, ignition sources and obstructions. This will reduce the risk of a fire starting and also reduce the risk to residents and the emergency services in the event of a fire.

If you currently store or leave items in the internal communal areas of your property, you will no longer be able to do so, even if you have been given permission in the past. We can no longer allow any items in internal communal areas. They must be kept completely free from all obstacles at all times.

So if you do have personal items in the communal areas e.g. pushchairs, bikes, ornaments, please remove them into your flat. Read our frequently asked questions for more information.
