The fire safety challenges facing the housing sector
Managing fire safety across multiple sites can be challenging, especially when it comes to ensuring compliance with relevant fire safety regulations. Specifically, those within the housing sector can find it particularly difficult to keep on top of their various sites.
Research has shown that fire safety now ranks as a top concern for social housing landlords including local authorities, housing associations and others. Specifically in relation to the communal areas of these types of buildings and the guidance surrounding communal space.
However, following the successful passage of the Fire Safety Bill 2021 through parliament, there is now clear guidance about what constitutes the ‘communal parts’ of a building and exactly who must take responsibility for fire protection in these areas.
