I live in a housing association block and we too have been told we can no longer have a mat outside our door due to trip hazard if there was a fire. I have ignored this as I think it's outrageous to be told you cannot have a mat to wipe your feet as you enter your property.
I have purchased a few cheap mats from the pound shop and will keep replacing the mat if it is taken away.
I refuse to put on the inside if my flat as advised.
I would suggest everyone does the same.
