HRBs are broadly residential buildings which are at least 18m or 7 storeys in height.The BSA duties are owed by Accountable Persons (APs). There can be more than one AP for a building, however the BSA requires a PrincipalAccountable Person (PAP) to take the lead on BSA matters in order that there is a single entity with overall BSA responsibility.The BSA requires the PAP for an HRB to prepare a strategy for promoting the participation of relevant persons (residents of the higher-riskbuilding who are aged 16 or over and those who own residential units in the building) in the making of building safety decisions. This is called aResidents Engagement Strategy.Berkeley Seventy-Seven Limited is the PAP for the building. Your PAP contact is Darren Osgood, who can be contacted by email or telephone on 0207 471 4444. References to “we” or “us” in this document are references to the PAP. Residential Management Group Limited (RMG) is the managing agentfor the PAP.
