A consultation is being held by the government on sprinklers and other fire safety measure in new high-rise blocks of flats – clearly one likely to be of great interest in Kensington.
The consultation outlines the government’s intention to amend Approved Document B https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fire-safety-approved-document-b to reduce the trigger height at which sprinkler systems would be required in new high-rise blocks of flats and asks for view on the trigger height options.
It also seeks views on proposals to improve wayfinding signage within blocks of flats and to install evacuation alert systems for use by fire and rescue services.
The consultation closes at 11.45 on 28 November 2019.
