The Government has worked closely with local authorities and Fire and Rescue Services to ensure that interim safety measures are in place, where necessary, in all high-rise residential buildings with unsafe ACM cladding, until the cladding is replaced. Details of these buildings can be found in the Building Safety Programme monthly data release here:

The Department does not hold information on costs or other types of buildings with interim safety measures.
