The UK Government released, in February 2017, their official line on how the UK could best address the problems currently found in the UK housing market in their Housing White Paper.
The main theme of the White Paper was the statement by Theresa May that ‘We need to build many more houses, of the type people want to live in, in places they want to live’.
As discussed in our previous blog post on the repair work being carried out at the Palace of Westminster, maximising fire safety in such a prestigious building can be a significant undertaking, but what about more commonplace historical properties and refurbishment projects?
The Palace of Westminster is the hub of the UK’s political power. The level of importance that this building holds means that it is protected by strict security protocols, and even has its own branch of the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Operations Directorate.
