The Building Safety Bill

Build Safe Live Safe – Video Series

Published on 28th Oct 2021

The Building Safety Bill will, in the Government's words “deliver the biggest improvements to building safety in nearly 40 years”

Below you can view a series of short videos accompanied by briefing notes on the key issues arising from these major changes in building safety regulation.

The proposed changes will fundamentally reform the building safety regime bringing new and stricter accountability for those that are responsible for residential buildings, backed by criminal sanctions for non-compliance. 

The bill will bring about changes to what information about a building must be retained, how it is stored, who is responsible for doing so and who it must be provided to. A new regulator will be the gatekeeper through which duty holders must pass during planning, construction and occupation stages of a building's lifecycle, with the aim of improving building and fire safety, so that people will be, and will feel, safer in their homes.
