Interim Residents Panel

The Building Safety Bill is making its way through Parliament. As it passes, we will get a clearer idea of what it might mean to the building safety reforms. We will share information as we learn more.

As part of the planned building safety reforms, HSE will be the new Building Safety Regulator (BSR) in England. Under the Bill, which is currently going through Parliament, BSR must set up a Residents' Panel. This will give residents an ongoing voice to help shape the work of BSR in England.

Meanwhile, we've set up an Interim Residents' Panel that will help us:

The interim panel is a small group of about 10 to 15 people. It is made up of a mix of residents and representatives from organisations. We have made sure that members represent people with different experiences.

What the interim panel will do

Members of the panel will not:

We may invite the panel to take part in wider working groups across government.

Residents Research Group

Applications for the interim panel have now closed.

You may be interested in joining our Residents Research Group. It will be a bigger group of residents designed for responsive information gathering on specific topics eg. through short questionnaires. The larger membership is intended to provide a more inclusive and representative mix of residents.

If you subscribe to the BSR newsletter, we'll let you know when we're ready to invite people to join that group.
