Fire safety advice for flats with balconies

We have a number of homes that have balconies.  These are located at Spring Valley Gardens (Mirfield), Esplanade (Whitby), Elmete Hill (Roundhay), Jane Few House (Crossgates), Newton Grove (Potternewton) and Rosemary Thompson House (Horsforth).

If a fire breaks out on a balcony, it could spread much faster than a fire inside your building, due to the lack of doors and walls to contain the fire and also an unlimited supply of oxygen outside to keep the fire burning.

We have produced this Balcony Fire Safety Guide to help you understand how to reduce the risk of a fire starting and spreading from your balcony.
