Buildings of between 11-18 metres in height, and hotels and hostels could be banned from using combustible materials on external walls.
The calls come in a Government review of the ban introduced on higher buildings at the end of 2018.
In the consultation, safety experts highlight that buildings with a residential use of between 11-18m in height may be subject to similar levels of fire risk to many of those taller than 18m. A large research project is proposed to improve understanding of building risk in relation to height and other factors, in order to support an appropriate height threshold for the ban in the future.
This consultation will run for 12 weeks until Monday 13 April and responses can be made online.
The consultation also proposes to extend the definition of buildings covered by the ban to hotels, hostels and boarding houses.
