Share you views on fire safety to inform new government report

Following the tragic event at Grenfell Tower in 2017, the Government launched an independent review of building regulations and fire safety. The purpose of the review was to ensure we have a robust regulatory system for the future and to provide assurance to residents that the buildings they live in are safe. The report, published in May 2018, noted the important role of residents in helping keep their building safe.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MCHLG), is now inviting residents to share their views and feedback on how residents and landlords work together to ensure fire and structural safety and how residents are supported to play a part in meeting their responsibilities. Responses are particularly welcomed from residents living in blocks.

The feedback will inform a new government policy relating to resident and landlord engagement and collaboration in relation to fire and structural safety issues.

Have your say by completing the survey. The deadline for feedback is 12 February 2019.
