Responsible Actors Scheme Banned Parties Will Be Limited to Sub-Ten Home Sites

Published on

The Responsible Actors Scheme, as detailed by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities, will limit developers sanctioned under this scheme to building sites of fewer than 10 homes, barring them from major developments in England, it has been announced. 

The scheme recognizes and acknowledges efforts made by responsible developers to rectify life-critical fire safety issues in residential blocks they developed or refurbished over the past 30 years, with those joining the scheme committing to remediating numerous buildings, with non-compliant developers facing planning and building control sanctions such as the one to ban developments over 10 homes. The guidelines outline requirements for prohibited developers, necessitating them to notify authorities about their status and limiting their ability to obtain planning permission and building control approval for major developments. Exceptions apply for certain situations, such as emergency repairs and critical infrastructure projects.
