Description of event

More than two years on from the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower, the government has published its proposals for a radically new building and fire safety system. These provide a strong indication on areas in which we can expect to see long-awaited changes. They are set out in a comprehensive consultation and are intended to overhaul the system for the design, construction and management of high rise residential buildings by:

• Mandating clearer responsibilities for those building or managing these buildings
• Giving a stronger voice in the system and better information for residents
• Having greater oversight by regulators
• Tougher enforcement when things go wrong

We appreciate that many of our members will be responding directly to the government consultation. However, we would appreciate your views on how the proposals could work in practice, the impact on your business and the key challenges that you think that specific proposals will raise.
