LABC consulting membership on building safety overhaul

Dame Judith Hackitt speaking at the LABC Conference 2019

Last Thursday (6 June) the government announced its plans for regulatory and legislative changes to implement the Hackitt Review. These proposals are being consulted on and will have far reaching implications for all of local government – not just building control.

The consultation is scheduled to end on 31 July and the documents can be downloaded here.

LABC is holding a series of events across England for building control staff and others in local government including elected members, directors and senior managers. These briefings will allow LABC members and wider local government decision makers to understand more about the government proposals and help LABC prepare its formal response to government.

The briefings will be hosted by either Lorna Stimpson, LABC Deputy Chief Executive or Martin Taylor, LABC Director of Regulatory Policy. Both are working closely with MHCLG and sit on the Joint Regulators Group working with officials, fire and rescue services and the HSE.

Places are still available at six of the briefings (the others are fully booked) – times, dates and locations and the agenda can be found here.
