Secure space

The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, defines a secure space as:

An enclosed space that:

  1. Is accessible only to the residents of the home.
  2. Is accessed directly from an external door of the home.
  3. Has permanent fixings or fittings.

A communal drying space is acceptable only if such space is enclosed, is only accessible to the residents and has a secure entrance.
