Safety in council homes

By on 15/12/2009 in News

Birmingham City Council is one of the most efficient councils in the country in terms of fire safety, under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

This year we've already carried out fire risk assessments on all 229 tower blocks and 4,500 low rise blocks- one of the few local authorities to have done so.

Secure By Design doors are being fitted to all tenants' homes and are not required by the fire safety standards, however we are fitting them as part of our plans to improve people’s homes and their quality of life.

Since 2004 we've installed over 13,000 secure by design doors to flats.
