Building a Safer Future: the ARCH response 08/08/2019 Labelled as Consultation

ARCH has responded to the Government consultation paper on proposals for a new regulatory system for high rise buildings. 


The consultation paper "Building a safer future" set out how the Government plan to overhaul the regulatory system for high rise residential buildings through:

  • clearer responsibilities for those building or managing these buildings;
  • a stronger voice in the system and better information for residents;
  • greater oversight by regulators; and
  • tougher enforcement when things go wrong.


The closing date for responses to the consultation paper was 31 July 2019.

We would like to thank those ARCH member councils that submitted comments to help in form the ARCH response.  The Housing Ministry have indicated that they wish to continue dialogue with the sector on the proposals before bringing forward the necessary legislation and we ask that if ARCH member councils have submitted their own responses to the consultation paper, if you have not already done so please copy your response to ARCH Policy Adviser Matthew Warburton:
