Grenfell survivors join the NHF and the National Fire Chiefs Council among organisations due to give evidence at an HCLG committee hearing on building regulations and fire safety.

Two years on from the Grenfell disaster, the session next Monday (8th July) is billed as an opportunity for the committee to hear from survivors about their present experience.

This will include the quality of the permanent accommodation provided to residents and the adequacy of wider support, particularly mental health provision.

The Committee will also look at relations with Kensington and Chelsea Council, and how residents can be given a stronger voice in the management of their buildings in the future.

Also under scrutiny are proposals made by the government in its consultation into reform of the building safety regulatory system, as well as considering the government’s wider work to remediate existing buildings with potentially dangerous cladding.

The line-up from 3.45pm in the Thatcher Room, Portcullis House is:

Panel one: Representatives of Grenfell Tower Survivors

  • TBC, Grenfell United

Panel two: Building owners and duty holders

  • Lord Porter, former chair, Local Government Association
  • Victoria Moffett, Grenfell Programme Lead, National Housing Federation
  • Richard Silva, executive director, Long Harbour
  • Dr Nigel Glen, chief executive officer, Association of Residential Managing Agents

Panel three: Fire and building safety experts

  • Adrian Dobson, executive director, Royal Institute of British Architects
  • Roy Wilsher, chair, National Fire Chiefs Council
  • Dr Jonathan Evans, chairman and CEO, Ash & Lacy
