Council backs sprinkler systems
12:30pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
SPRINKLER systems and carbon monoxide alarms could become standard in new builds.
Colchester Council agreed a motion last night to do “all it can” to promote the safety devices through planning applications.
Developers will be encouraged to fit sprinklers and CO detectors, particularly in schools, houses with multiple residents, and elderly and disabled accommodation.
