Southern Housing Group is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and provide comfortable, energy efficient homes with low running costs for its customers. The government has updated its ambition for the UK to become a carbon Net Zero country by 2050.
We are looking for residents to get involved in an open discussion using Zoom (an online meeting platform) at the start of this project to help shape the strategy. The focus groups will include information, discussions, interactive polls and questions and answers:
Wednesday 5th May 10.30am to 12.30pm 2021 (join and test Zoom from 10am)
Wednesday 5th May 6.30pm to 8.30pm 2021 (join and test Zoom from 6pm)
Please note, should a focus group be over-subscribed, we will ensure each region is represented fairly and an online survey will be provided to others. Reasonable adjustments to be involved will also be considered. An agenda together with Zoom links will be sent to residents attending.
Building and Fire Safety Strategy Focus Groups
Creating a Building and Fire Safety Involvement Strategy
The Building and Fire Safety team would like to work with residents from across the regions and from all tenures to get involved in an initial open discussion about Building and Fire Safety. Your feedback will be used to shape the strategy from the very start.
The governments’ draft Building Safety Bill and Fire Safety Bill sets out the ways in which landlords need to involve residents and undertake necessary works to homes. This will include working with a resident representative for each Multi-Story Living accommodation.
There are two Building and Fire Safety Focus Groups planned for up to 20 residents in each group. Should we exceed this number we will ensure each region is represented and will provide alternative methods of involvement for those unable to attend.
The Focus Groups will take place on Thursday 13th May 2021:
Building and Fire Safety Focus Group 1 - 10am to 12pm
Building and Fire Safety Focus Group 2 - 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
