Building Safety Levy - consultation response (February 2024)

12 March 2024

We have read with interest the government’s response, published on 23 January 2024, to the consultation on the Building Safety Levy that took place in late 2022/early 2023.

We are pleased it intends to exclude from the levy the development of affordable housing, non-social homes built by not-for-profit registered providers and their subsidiaries, and other types of accommodation for people in need, such as supported housing, children’s homes, care homes and nursing homes.

However, it appears the government has failed to address some other very important issues that were raised in our response to the previous consultation. These are therefore reiterated below in our response to the second consultation, which was also published on 23 January 2024.
