So ? it's finally with us and I'm working my way through. Some really good recommendations, some less palatable. Any thoughts yet? By the looks of the report intent for cultural change we must be years away from implementation.

On my initial scan and glance I am glad to see a reference to Residents rights and Responsibilities.

Will we see some statutory responsibility and accountability placed on tenants come out of this as there will probably be for many others?

In the scale of brokenness, how broken will the proposed regime be after say five years following implementation? The existing system is broken but not irredeemably so. Perhaps like a broken car all it needs is the replacement of a few parts to achieve the objective of getting it to drive safely and efficiently.
I note that the good Dame lauds CDM in her Report as a model to structure accountability. CDM is something I deal with daily and it is broken, not as broken as the version that preceded it but broken nonetheless. However, it remains a good, broken, vehicle and a few tweaks here and there should keep it bumping along.
I am always wary of folk who want to wipe the slate clean. That is the easy option. In terms of objective, there is not a great deal of difference between an old Ford Escort and a new Rolls Royce if they are both broken, other than it might be cheaper to fix and maintain the former!

Brave to assume what the English government will or won't do in response to the report (they're currently consulting with others regarding its contents), but if they do accept the recommendation that the new regime delivers: "Clearer rights and obligations for residents to maintain the fire safety of individual dwellings, working in partnership with the dutyholder...This will include a combination of transparency of information and an expectation that residents support the dutyholder to manage the risk across the whole building" then I would infer this would need to be achieved via new or altered legislation, unless it can be argued that existing legislation covers it.
