Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy we have been working urgently to identify any other buildings over 18 metres with potentially unsafe aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding. With the support of local authorities, fire and rescue services and the expert panel, MHCLG is supporting building owners to take immediate steps to ensure the safety of residents.
