Residents panels & committee

Resident Safety Panel

The Resident Safety Panel looks at fire safety in Council homes, and looks at other issues such as gas, electrical and water (Legionella) safety. Members of the panel are given access to free training which enables them to make informed challenges to the Council’s policies and its approach to safety issues. The panel meets during the evening at Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street every two months.

We have good leaseholder representation on the panel, however Council tenants and those living in high rise homes are currently under-represented. We feel it is important that members of the panel are representative of a diverse mix of both tenants and leaseholders, and includes those living in high-rise buildings, street properties and sheltered blocks. 

If you would like to attend the Resident Safety Panel – and especially if you are a Council tenant – we would like to hear from you. Please email us at: peta.caine@rbkc.gov.uk for more information. 

Next Resident Safety Panel meeting: Monday 23 March, 6.30pm at Kensington Town Hall.
