The registrations to the Building Safety Fund for Crusader House and George Street Trading House confirmed they would not be able to meet the original start on site deadline which was required to be eligible for funding when the £1 billion Building Safety Fund was launched. The Government has since announced an additional £3.5 billion of funding which will fund the cost of replacing unsafe cladding for leaseholders in all residential buildings 18 metres and higher in England and should provide assurance to leaseholders that all eligible applications to the Building Safety Fund will be able to proceed. We will publish more details on how the additional funding will work alongside the existing funds soon.
