To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many properties are clad in (a) aluminium composite material (ACM) flammable and (b) non-ACM flammable cladding systems; what the deadline is for removal of ACM flammable cladding systems from affected properties; if he will publish his timetable for action; and if he will make a statement.
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, by what date all flammable cladding will have been removed from residential blocks.
The Department publishes data on the number of high-rise residential and publicly owned buildings in England with ACM cladding systems unlikely to meet building regulations. The latest data is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-safety-programme-monthly-data-release-may-2020 . The Department also estimates there to be 1,700 residential buildings over 18 metres in height with potentially unsafe non-ACM cladding. This is a working estimate produced by MHCLG officials to help with development of the Building Safety Fund.
For the removal of unsafe ACM cladding, it is our ambition that all building owners have works on site by the end of 2020, with completion of remedial works by the end of 2021.
