Following the release of Dame Judith Hackitt’s review of the Building Regulations, I joined many across the sector in calling for a ban on combustible materials, and I called for new rules to be implemented immediately to avoid uncertainty to the construction industry. Although delayed, the regulations for the combustible materials ban were laid before Parliament in December 2018.
