Briefings on the draft Building Safety Bill

13 August 2020

We’re seeking member feedback on the proposed changes in the Bill. 

The government published the draft Building Safety Bill on 20 July, setting out proposed legislative changes to deliver reforms to the building safety regulatory system.

The Bill includes the government’s final proposals for a more stringent regulatory regime for higher-risk buildings as well as proposed regulatory changes that will impact all building work.

The changes that apply to all building work will affect all housing associations, even those which do not own or manage higher-risk buildings.

    Feedback

    We’re asking for feedback from members on the proposed changes to help us respond to the Bill. Please share your views with us - email housingsafety@housing.org.uk by Tuesday 8 September.
