The Government is committed to bringing forward a Building Safety Bill that delivers meaningful and lasting change as soon as practicable. Resident safety is paramount and we owe it to them to get this right.

The Government will also introduce a Fire Safety Bill in the coming weeks to put beyond doubt that building owners and managers of multi-occupied residential premises of any height are required to fully consider and mitigate the risks of any external wall systems and front doors to individual flats.
