Following the announcement on 16 May 2018 that
the Government would fund the removal of unsafe Aluminium Composite
Material (ACM) cladding, the Government has released £248 million
in the first tranche of an estimated £400 million of funding.
12 local authorities and 31 housing associations have been
allocated money from the fund to cover the cost of removing and
replacing unsafe ACM cladding from social, residential buildings
they own which are 18 metres or higher.
Applications for 159 buildings have been received to date and
135 applications have been approved in this first tranche of
12 applications were not eligible for funding because they
didn't meet the application criteria - for example the buildings
are below 18 metres, owned by commercial freeholders or the
cladding is not ACM.
12 applications have been deferred, while building owners
provide further information to the Ministry of Housing to confirm
