LGA responds to PM's cladding funding pledge

Lord Porter, Local Government Association Chairman, responded to the announcement by the Prime Minister yesterday that the Government will fully fund the removal of cladding and insulation systems from tower blocks by councils and housing associations at an estimated cost of £400 million

“While the priority for councils has been getting on with what they need to do to ensure people are safe in their homes following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the LGA has been involved in public and private conversations with the Government about the financial implications.

“It is great that the Government has honoured its commitment from last summer to meet the unexpected exceptional costs for councils arising from major remedial fire safety work on high-rise buildings.”
