Ban developers starting new work until their EWS1 failing buildings are fixed

Petition Details

Property developers who are historically responsible for buildings that have failed their EWS1 certificate and require works, should not be allowed to start work on new developments, until their previous development failings have been rectified, helping to resolve the situation with more speed.

Additional Information

If property developers aren't held responsible for their unsafe historical buildings, how can the public be assured that their new buildings won't also fail these safety checks in the future? By stopping developers starting on new work until failings are fixed, they'll need to divert their workforce, funds and focus to help resolve this building fire safety crisis across their past portfolio, which is currently affecting many thousands of people. The levy put into action today isn't good enough.
