Residents panel

The Building Safety Act 2022 requires that we set up a Residents' Panel (the panel) to ensure residents are placed at the heart of the new regulatory regime.

The Building Safety Regulator (BSR) recruited a panel of 18 people in December 2022.

Members of the panel either live in or rent out homes in high-rise buildings around England. There is broad mix of ages and genders, and the panel includes disabled residents. The panel includes people who live in social housing and private rental properties and leasehold owners.

The panel will be supported by organisations that represent high-rise building residents.
