Martin Taylor, LABC

Martin gave an overview of the Government's Implementation Plan following on from its 'Building a Safer Future' report. The plan to implement the report's recommendations was released in December 2018 and will mean a critical overhaul of the industry over the coming years.

There will be a stronger and more effective regulatory and accountability framework through the Joint Regulatory Group, of which, LABC is a part of. There will be clearer standards and guidance, stronger residents' voice and huge culture change within the industry.

"There will be regulation, and we must act now," Martin said as he explained the new points of regulatory intervention and the responsibilities of duty holders.
