The Government has taken urgent action on building safety, including committing £600 million for remediating unsafe ACM cladding on high-rise buildings in the social and private sectors. Government intervention is wholly exceptional and based on the unparalleled fire risk ACM poses.

Residents’ safety remains this Government's utmost priority and there is no excuse for building owners not ensuring that residents are safe in their homes. Government will continue to support leaseholders and is reviewing options on how best to do so.
