Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry Phase 1 Report – member briefing

We explain what the findings of the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry Phase 1 Report could mean for housing associations, and set out some of the recommendations that could apply to or affect owners and managers of large residential buildings.

13 November 2019

The Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry published its phase 1 report on 30 October 2019, which looks into the events on the night of the fire. The report sets out a number of findings and recommendations that may have implications for housing associations, which we have summarised in our member briefing. 

In the briefing, we cover: 

  • The Federation's ongoing work on building safety issues. 
  • Key points from the phase 1 report that are likely to have an implication for housing associations. 
  • Details of recommendations in the report that apply to or affect owners and managers of large residential buildings.
