Legal Perspectives on Putting Buildings Right Post-Grenfell: what went wrong and how can it be put right?
The Grenfell Tower disaster has revealed that many hundreds (if not thousands) of buildings in England and Wales are built in such a way as to pose an immediate threat to the safety of the occupiers. The problems span the social and private sectors and affect all tenures. The response from developers, landlords and central and local government has been patchy and inconsistent.
This conference, co-hosted by the Faculty of Law of the University of Oxford, Landmark Chambers and Leigh Day solicitors, brings together politicians, policy-makers and experts in the fields of fire safety, building regulations, local government powers, housing standards, private law and human rights, to analyse what went wrong, the adequacy (or otherwise) of the post-Grenfell reforms and to hear the voices of those impacted.
