All credit should be given to the RIBA for its new plan of work for fire safety consultation.

This takes the Hackitt Review recommendations to improve the fire safety of high-risk residential buildings and maps these against the seven stages of work. This includes defining the fire safety strategy at Stage 2 (concept design), submitting full plans for approval at Stage 4 (technical design) and ensuring the building is fire safe before occupation at Stage 6 (handover).
