For an express service to lodge your Fire Safety Certificate application, you must settle FiSCA’s quotation and make a donation to Blood Bikes West at or via an EFT. IBAN can be provided

The size of the donation will depend upon the complexity of the project. For projects up to 2,760m2 a donation of €2,000 will suffice. Why so high,  because too many people were using this service, to the extent that my evenings were being spent in the office trying to wade my way through them! One, once in a while is enough, not a constant stream of these requests. For projects over 2,760m2 a donation equal to 25% of the County Council’s FSC fee will suffice. Forward a copy of the donation receipt to along with your request.

Chris promises to undertake and submit your Fire Safety Certificate application within ten working days of your donation, providing you give him all necessary information for your project when requested. You get the express service you want and Chris has the satisfaction of knowing someone else has benefited from his good fortune. The Disability Access Certificate application will be lodged when it’s turn comes up on the Board, as the DAC isn’t required until the premises is ready for opening.

Please note that this is not a fast-track service through the local authority administrative system to obtain your Fire Safety Certificate any quicker than the existing system allows.

Chris undertakes this work in his own time in the evenings so as not to delay the normal schedule/programme of work already posted on
