To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how much and what proportion of the Building Safety Programme has been paid out for the removal of combustible cladding.
15 October 2020
The Government has allocated £600 million for funding to remove unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding from high rise residential buildings. Information on how much of the funding has been approved for the removal and replacement of unsafe ACM can be found on the Building Safety Programme Monthly Data Release, available at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/aluminium-composite-material-cladding#acm-remediation-data.
In addition to this, the Government is allocating £1 billion for the Building Safety Fund in 2020/21 to support the remediation of other types of unsafe cladding systems (‘non-ACM’) on high rise residential buildings. We are currently processing registrations to the Building Safety Fund and working with building owners to assess their eligibility for the scheme.
