Building safety webinar with Clive Betts MP and the British Property Federation
The issue of building safety has never been higher profile than it is today.
As the draft Building Safety Bill nears the end of its pre-legislative scrutiny BECG is pleased to welcome the Chair of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee, Clive Betts MP, to a webinar to discuss the Bill and what lies ahead for UK building regulation.
Joining Clive will be the British Property Federation’s Director of Real Estate Policy, Ian Fletcher, for what will be a fascinating discussion on:
- The evidence gathered by the Select Committee in its scrutiny sessions
- How the current building regulations system may change
- The implications for developers, landlords and funders
- How the needs of residents and communities will be reflected
- And the next steps to implement the Hackitt Review recommendations
There will also be the opportunity for you to pose your questions to Mr Betts and Ian on this crucial topic.
