Government bans the use of combustible materials in buildings over 18m

The Government has published amendments to Building Regulations in England restricting the use of combustible materials in the external walls of certain buildings over 18m in height. 

The restrictions apply to the external walls and specified attachments for residential blocks of flats, student accommodations, care homes, sheltered housing, hospitals and dormitories in boarding schools with a storey above 18 m in height.

The amendments require that all materials which become part of an external wall or specified attachment achieve
European Class Class A1 or A2-s1, d0.
