DLUHC has launched a consultation seeking views on the design and implementation of the Building Safety Levy. The Levy will be paid by developers and charged on new residential buildings requiring building control approval in England, for the purpose of meeting building safety expenditure. There are particular considerations in the consultation about where PBSA should included and the National Codes is considering make a joint submission with the BPF which we will share with members.

The consultation covers the following areas:

  • Overview and update
  • Exclusions
  • Supportive measures
  • Impact on industry
  • Sanctions and incentives
  • Appeals
