Holding answer received on 13 January 2020

As noted in the answer to Parliamentary Question 117 on 7 January, following the Grenfell fire the Housing Checks mailbox was established to allow local authorities (LAs) and housing associations (HAs) to report their stock of buildings with unsafe Aluminium Composite Cladding.

Residents that wish to email the department with concerns on building safety should do so through the online portal:
