What is the Dorset Model?

The Dorset model is a technical guide to requirements if you are planning extending or constructing a thatched roof building less than 12m from your boundary. The ‘Dorset Model’ has been jointly produced by the Local Authorities across Dorset in conjunction with Dorset Fire and Rescue Service. It is one way of meeting the requirements.

The Dorset Model has been broadly adopted, although there are now other LABC approved systems, see also Thatch-Safe® Model.
