Guidance for Fire Safety in Specialised Housing

Ann Denham

Ash Denham, Community Safety Minister, today launched a consultation on fire safety guidance. The Guidance has been drafted to deliver on the sixth recommendation from the Review of the Fire Safety Regime for High Rise Domestic Buildings in ScotlandThe Review’s other recommendations relate to fire safety in high rise domestic buildings and were agreed by the Scottish Government Ministerial Working Group on Building and Fire Safety that was set up following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower. The sixth recommendation “Introduction of Scottish guidance concerning Fire safety in specialised housing” is not specific to high rise domestic buildings but also agreed by the Ministerial Working Group.

We encourage all members with an interest in Fire Safety to read the guidance and submit their comments.
