The Government will fully fund the removal and replacement of potentially dangerous Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding on buildings over 18 metres owned by social landlords, with costs estimated at £400 million.

This will ensure that they can focus their efforts on making ACM cladding systems safe for the buildings they own.

We want to allocate this funding for remediation as soon as possible and will announce more details shortly.
