The Government has been clear in its expectation that all owners of high rise residential buildings with Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding complete remedial works by the end of 2021. For other types of unsafe cladding, the Government is making £1 billion available to fund the removal of unsafe non-ACM cladding in 2020/21. In addition, the application guidance clearly states that applicants must be in a position to evidence that remediation works will commence onsite prior to 31st March 2021 and, once funding is granted, must subsequently ensure that remedial works are delivered at pace.
