Holding answer received on 26 June 2018

The Department wrote to local authorities last year drawing their attention to safety issues which had been identified in respect of large panel system buildings. Work is underway to review and revise the guidance in the Handbook for the Structural Assessment of Large Panel System (LPS) Dwelling Blocks for accidental loading (BR 511), to help local authorities and housing associations assess any risks to large panel system dwelling blocks and whether remedial action may be needed.
