"Stonewater welcomes the Government’s Building Safety Bill, published today, particularly in respect of the customer voice and the creation of a new Building Safety Regulator.

Nicholas Harris, CEO, says “The reforms will give residents more routes to raise safety concerns and streamline the complaints process which, too often, can be onerous and lengthy. The industry must learn from experience and while there are still aspects which could go further it is, overall, a positive step forward. As a leading social landlord, Stonewater puts quality and safety absolutely at the heart of development and management, and we believe the customer voice should be heard at every stage. We welcome the added consumer protection within the Bill and hope the new Regulator will prove effective at addressing poor practice where it continues to exist.”
