Great News on Cladding!

Welcome news announced last week that the Government will pay for the replacement of Grenfell-type cladding on high-rise private blocks.

Communities Secretary, James Brokenshire has announced a Government fund of £200 million to replace unsafe aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding on around 170 privately owned high-rise buildings, calling time on the “delaying tactics” of “reckless” building owners who had refused to take action.

The Government says this work should now take place urgently, eliminating excuses used by some building owners and protecting leaseholders from the costs.
