A representative from my team continues to work with London boroughs through the Housing Directors’ Fire Safety Group convened by London Councils. The Local Government Association is setting up a Joint Inspection Team (JIT) to advise and support boroughs to enforce against building owners who fail to remove dangerous cladding from high rise residential buildings.
