Why is that breeze block wall there?!

We were surprised to see this breeze block wall appear in our timber frame extension.

Apparently it is now required as a fire break, despite the fact that the neighbouring house a few inches beyond this wall is a modern double skinned brick wall.

This sadly reduced the space available in the kitchen by a small but much needed amount, but will at least increase the thermal mass of the building.
