This Guidance is for high rise domestic buildings in Scotland.  It draws on the content of the guidance issued for England, ‘Fire safety in purpose-built blocks of flats’ (Local Government Association). We wish to thank the Local Government Association for permitting the use of text, diagrams and photographs from their guide.

The Grenfell Tower Inquiry is an independent public inquiry, set up to examine the circumstances leading up to and surrounding the fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017.  The Phase 1 report was published on 30 October 2019.  The Scottish Government will study the findings and assess if there are lessons from which to learn to further strengthen safety in buildings and update guidance accordingly.
