Barton House, Bristol – Yet another evacuation due to building defects

A tower block in Bristol is being evacuated after a structural issue was discovered today (Nov 14, 2023).

The only way out of this crisis is the Earl of Lytton’s Building Safety Scheme to make those responsible for building defective blocks of flats (that cause evacuations) permanently liable without the need for homeowners to take them to court.

Consumer protection legislation for blocks of flats is needed as a matter of urgency in the UK. The Earl’s amendment is coming back to the House of Lords in due course.
