The Government is committed to bringing about the biggest change to building safety in a generation

For high-rise buildings with unsafe ACM cladding, inaction will have consequences. From next month, those responsible for buildings will be named where remediation has not started, and only be removed from the public list when it has. The Department will also be working with the relevant local authorities to support enforcement where necessary.

Updated advice on the measures building owners should take to ensure building safety has now been published. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-safety-advice-for-building-owners-including-fire-doors. Building owners and developers who have not already taken action must do so as soon as possible
