Response to written statement on Grenfell from Secretary of State

The Secretary of State for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MCHLG) has published a written statement on Grenfell this afternoon. Part of this announcement is about two housing associations who will be early adopters of new building safety practices and behaviours.

Lucy Grove, Grenfell Programme Lead at the National Housing Federation says:

“The National Housing Federation is pleased to be working with MHCLG and our members on the early adopter scheme. Implementation of the Hackitt Review needs to be a priority for both Government and industry, but it will be a complicated and lengthy process. That is why it is very important that key recommendations are piloted within the housing association sector and more broadly to start to see action on the ground and ensure these initiatives lead to meaningful and lasting change.”
