Housing, communities and local Government Committee Report ‘Cladding: progress of remediation’

12th Jun 20 12:22 pm

ARMA welcomes the publication of the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee Second Report ‘Cladding: progress of remediation’.

The likely scale of the problem and the unfairness facing leaseholders being asked to pay for cladding related costs such as fire alarms and waking watches is made clear for all to see.

It particularly applauds the recognition given to the emotional and psychological toll that leaseholders face.

Dr Nigel Glen, CEO of ARMA, said:“It is vital that adequate funds are provided so that all buildings deemed a high fire risk, regardless of height or material, are remediated as quickly as possible, with arguments about who is at fault and who should pay being addressed separately.

“The report outlined a number of interesting ways in which this could be achieved but getting people safe must be the first priority.”
