“Sprinklers mandatory in new homes in Wales from 2016″
“Members in Wales should be aware that, under the Domestic Fire Safety Regulations 2013, the installation of fire sprinklers in all new and converted houses and flats in Wales will be mandatory from January 2016. This requirement has already been in place for certain high-risk properties (e.g. care homes, student halls of residence, and certain hostels) since April 2014”
Could be that the rest of the United Kingdom will follow suit in time.
