Government Announces Further Support to Help End the Cladding Crisis

Almost four years after the Grenfell Tragedy, ARMA welcomes the Secretary of State’s announcement today that an additional £3.5bn in funding will be provided to help remediate buildings over 18 metres with unsafe cladding to add to the £1.6bn already earmarked. The ‘exceptional intervention’ marks increased Government support for leaseholders trapped in unsellable flats that are at risk from potentially deadly fires. The culmination of an industry-wide effort, the announcement proves that ARMA’s extensive work with the MHCLG, industry bodies, cladding action groups, press and TV and engagement with scores of MPs over the years has played its part in ensuring that further action on cladding remediation has remained high on the Government’s agenda.
