Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the Government established a Building Safety Programme to ensure that buildings over 18 metres are safe.
We have collected information on high rise buildings, which have Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding. That information is published on the building safety pages at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/building-safety-programme
In addition, we are liaising with local authorities to identify all private residential blocks in their areas which have ACM and that the owners of these buildings have interim measures put in place and a plan for any necessary remedial work put in place, and to provide the Department with data on this.
