Residents panel

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

We are seeking applications from current residents of high-rise buildings (HRBs) who would like to be considered for a position on the panel.

The panel will be a small group of about 20 people who are a broad mix of HRB residents from different locations and housing types, including social housing, private rent, and leasehold owners. As well as a mix of residents, it will be supported by representatives from relevant organisations.
