In September 2019 the Department announced the provision of £4 million new burdens funding to support local authorities with the External Wall Systems data collection. This funding allows local authorities to collect data on their own social stock, and on the private residential stock, hotels and student accommodation in their areas.

No estimate has been made of the cost to housing associations to provide data on their own social residential properties.
