The Department has been in contact with all local authorities in England about high rise residential buildings and cladding as part of its Building Safety Programme. Information being collected through this exercise is set out in monthly data releases which are published at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/building-safety-programme#data-on-the-building-safety-progamme. The issue of mould was raised at an earlier time with the Department and general advice on Building Regulations would have been provided.
