The G15 responds to consultation on fire safety
- 14 October 2020
The G15 welcomes the chance to comment on the Government’s consultation on fire safety.
This consultation ran alongside the draft Building Safety Bill and contained proposals to:
- Strengthen the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and improve compliance
- Implement the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 Report recommendations that require a change in law to place new requirements on building owners or managers of multi-occupied residential buildings, mostly high-rise buildings
- Strengthen the regulatory framework for how building control bodies consult with Fire and Rescue Authorities and the handover of fire safety information
The G15 is committed to keeping our residents safe. We owns approximately 10% of the high-rise buildings in England, representing thousands of families and leaseholders who will be positively and negatively impacted by the upcoming changes to legislation.
We welcome and support many of the suggested changes but must continue to express our desire for further clarity.
