In 2017, we provided financial support to local authorities for data collection and reporting on cladding on high rise private residential buildings, on recognition of this as a new burden. The total amount transferred to local authorities was £289,000. Government then announced on 1 May 2018 that it would provide financial support of £1 million to assist those local authorities most affected in identifying private sector residential buildings over 18 metres to complete the process. The total allocation was paid to 80 eligible local authorities last summer.
