UIN 58821, tabled on 11 June 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to the Building Safety Programme: 26th monthly data release, data as at 31 December 2019, published by his Department, how many of the 75 private sector residential buildings with ACM cladding systems unlikely to meet building regulations that were reported in that data release as having responded with an intent to remediate and are developing plans (a) do not yet have a remediation plan in place and (b) have had enforcement action taken against them.

As at 31 May 2020, there were 40 high-rise private sector residential buildings that had reported an intent to remediate and are developing plans. Where building owners are failing to make acceptable progress, those responsible should expect further action to be taken – including tougher enforcement action by local authorities and Fire and Rescue Services.

Of those that only had an 'intent' to remediate in December 2019, the Department is aware of enforcement action that has been taken against 10 of them, including those where the Joint Inspection Team has provided support to local authorities.
