To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to his Department's Building Safety Programme: Data Release published on 7 February 2019, what estimate his Department has made of the time required to complete remedial works for the remaining 361 high-rise residential and public buildings.
13 February 2019
Remediation of buildings with unsafe Aluminium Composite Material cladding systems is a complex process and remediation work involves addressing any issues with the exterior cladding system and broader fire safety systems for each building. For these reasons it is not possible to predict when remediation will be fully completed.
As set out in the most recent the data release 73 buildings have been fully remediated. Remediation work has started on further 98 buildings. Remediation plans are in place for 166 buildings. There are 38 buildings intending to remediate, and remediation plans remain unclear for 50 buildings. There are a further 9 publicly owned buildings comprising health buildings and a school which require remediation.
