The Building Safety Team advising the Government programme arising from Dame Judith Hackitt’s review are a combination of LFB staff and seconded officers from other fire and rescue services. Seconded officers are principally located in the Home Office and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) offices when required in London for meetings. They attend London Fire Brigade headquarters when required, utilising agile working spaces within the building. These arrangements are not due to change.
