The Fire Safety Bill 2019/21 is being introduced to amend the existing Fire Regulatory Reform Order 2005. The intention is to provide clarity over the responsibility for Fire Safety in buildings that contain more than one home.

It is also intended to give greater clarity on what the Order covers, specifically to confirm that the Order applies to:

  • A building’s Structure
  • External Walls “ including doors or windows in those walls
  • Any common parts “ including the front doors of residential parts
  • Anything attached to the exterior walls “ i.e. balconies

This will be enforced by the Fire and Rescue Authorities and there will be increased enforcement action on the areas listed above.

If you have a cladding issue and need help in progressing matters to conclusion, there is no time to lose.
