The Royal Institute of British Architects is calling for new tall multi-occupancy buildings to have  alternative means of escape and well as wider staircases. (As is required in most of the rest of Europe)

This is something we have been pointing out from the start with the CoLPAI tower. The proposed single staircase is only 100mm wider than the one in Grenfell.

I have tabled the following question for the next islington Council full meeting on 7th December:

Islington Council is considering a planning application for the extension of the Golden Lane Estate, to include a new 14 storey residential tower block with a single staircase - only four inches wider than the one at Grenfell Tower. Given that single staircase tower blocks are already banned in many other countries, and UK building regulations are under review, is it right to be making fire safety compromises on new buildings at this time?
