good Morning.

I work for the city of York council and we have been undertaking some work to increase outside storage in our tenanted flats for items such as buggies/bicycles etc.

One of the aims is to declutter to improves evacuation and egress in the event of a fire.

We are looking to do some analysis of the impact of the project so I was looking for some details/research on the effect of "clutter" as a risk facture for injury and fatality in the event of a fire? perhaps something on how much extra time it takes to exit via a cluttered exit and how X additional minuets of being in a fire increase the risk of harm by Y%?

Does anyone have any research they could share that might be applicable in this case?

thanks

Liam
