On 21 July 2021 the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) published an Open Consultation on the Building Safety Levy. This consultation seeks views on the design and calculation of the proposed Building Safety Levy, through which developers will be making a contribution to remedy historical building safety defects. Please note that the proposals relate to England only.

This consultation is open until Friday 15th October. Responses can be submitted via a digital survey hosted on Citizen Space or by email to:  HRB.LevyConsultation@communities.gov.uk. MHCLG’s Building Safety Levy team welcome opportunities to engage and facilitate informative surgeries during the 12-week consultation process. Participation in a consultation meeting can be arranged by using the email above.

AREF’s Residential Funds Working Group will be reviewing this consultation. If you have any views on the consultation that you would like to share with the Working Group please advise Jacqui Bungay, Policy Secretariat (jbungay@aref.org.uk).
