Fire safety since Grenfell - what’s changed?
The tragic fire at Grenfell Tower launched a wave of calls for change in building regulations and fire safety.
But two years on, what has been done to prevent such devastation happening again?
The London Safety Plan puts fire safety at the centre of the London Fire Brigade’s service delivery to London’s communities.
Tomorrow the London Assembly Fire, Resilience and Emergency Planning Committee will investigate fire safety in tall buildings.
The guests are:
- Dan Daly, Assistant Commissioner, London Fire Brigade
- Nick Coombe, Strategic Technical Adviser, London Fire Brigade
- Charlie Pugsley, Deputy Assistant Commissioner, London Fire Brigade
- Martin Boyd, Chair, Leaseholder Knowledge Partnership
- Pat Turnball, Regional Delegate, London Tenants Federation
- Martin Conlon, Chair – Building Control Professional Group, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors
- Pat Hayes, Managing Director, BeFirst Regeneration
The meeting will take place on Thursday, 18 July at 2.30pm in The Chamber, City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).
Media and members of the public are invited to attend.
