The UKTFA welcomes the publication of the Fire Safety in London report and applauds the Greater London Authority for making formal recommendations throughout the report that mirror the existing good practice procedures adopted by UKTFA members. The report is also welcomed as it confirms once and for all that timber frame buildings pose no significantly greater risk of fire than conventionally constructed buildings1 and that the drive to use low carbon construction materials will also shape London’s housing mix2.
