To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to his Department's paper entitled, Building Safety Programme: Monthly Data Release, published on 7 February 2019, on what dates the (a) 79 social sector and (b) 19 private sector buildings started remediation.
As of 31 January 2019, remediation works had started on 79 social sector and 19 private sector residential buildings, with 40 social and 33 privately-owned buildings having completed remediation (including sign off from building control where necessary).
The table below summarises when remediation started for the 98 social and private sector residential buildings marked as remediation started but not yet completed as at 31 January 2019.
The remediation of buildings with Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding systems unlikely to meet Building Regulations is a complex process. Remediation work involves addressing any issues with the exterior cladding system and broader fire safety systems for each building. All of this work takes time and varies considerably depending on the building structure, extent of cladding, and existing fire safety systems. For many buildings this is a complex job involving major construction work which needs to be planned, consulted on and carried out carefully.
