Resident engagement strategy
There is a requirement on the accountable person to produce and run a comprehensive resident engagement strategy. This should set out how the accountable person will deliver resident involvement and participation in their buildings and outlines what residents can expect by way of communication and how they can get involved and raise concerns.
The Explanatory Notes to the Draft Building Safety Bill, published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government on 20 July 2020, defines a resident of a dwelling as: ‘…a person who lawfully resides there, regardless of tenure.’
It defines a resident engagement strategy as: '....the means by which those living in buildings covered by the new regulatory regime can get more involved in the decision-making in relation to the safety of their homes. It will set out the approach and the activities that the Accountable Person will undertake to deliver these opportunities for all residents to participate.'
A residents' panel is: 'A statutory committee to be set up by the Building Safety Regulator. The residents’ panel will be made up of residents and representatives/advocates of residents, and advise the Building Safety Regulator on strategy, policy, systems and guidance which will be of particular interest to residents of higher-risk buildings.'
