Latest figures from MHCLG (Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government published on 22 January reveal 299 residential buildings have ACM (aluminium Composite Materials) cladding that is unlikely to meet current Building Regulations Guidance. The latest figures reveal that the major problems lie in the private residential/student sector and the housing association sector with only 45 of the buildings owned by local authorities.


Of the total of 299 buildings affected:


  • 45 are owned by local authority landlords
  • 115 by housing associations
  • 95 are private residential buildings
  • 31 are private student residences; &
  • 13 are public buildings.


In England 63 local authority areas contain at least one residential building over 18metres or public building with confirmed ACM cladding systems that are unlikely to meet current Building Regulations guidance.  These figures will change as work proceeds to remove and replace ACM cladding systems.
