To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what the timeframe is for the removal of all unsafe cladding from residential buildings.
6 July 2020
Building safety is the responsibility of the building owner, and we expect remedial works to progress at pace.
For the removal of unsafe ACM cladding from high-rise residential buildings the Government has provided £600 million in funding. We have made progress, and as a result of our action, across all sectors, 209 buildings have either completed remediation or have had their ACM cladding systems removed. It is our ambition that all remaining building owners have works on site by the end of 2020, with completion of remedial works by the end of 2021.
The Government will provide £1 billion in 2020/21 to support the remediation of unsafe non-ACM cladding systems on high-rise residential buildings in both the private and social sectors.
