Yesterday afternoon (10th January), the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the Rt. Hon. Michael Gove gave a statement to the House of Commons, confirming an ‘overhaul’ of the Government’s approach to the building safety crisis.
The statement marks a ‘resetting’ of government policy, with the relatively new Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) team (formerly the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government), demonstrating a new commitment to fixing unsafe and dangerous buildings as soon as possible, while keeping costs to a minimum for leaseholders living in those buildings.
