How often do I need to position Movement Control Joints in masonry?

The nature of concrete masonry is such that it will shrink and because of this it is necessary to accommodate movement control joints in the building design. BS 5628-3:2005 sets out the parameters for the positioning of control joints, and as a rule, vertical joints to accommodate horizontal movement should be provided at 6 to 9m intervals.
