Government to fund replacement of dangerous cladding on private tower blocks - CIH responds


Responding to the Prime Minister’s announcement that the government will fully fund the replacement of unsafe aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding on high-rise private residential properties where building owners have failed to do so, Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) chief executive Terrie Alafat CBE said: "Almost two years since the Grenfell Tower tragedy, it is quite frankly unacceptable that so many private tower blocks have been left with dangerous cladding, leaving thousands of people living in fear.

"Together with Inside Housing and many other organisations we have been calling on the government to end this scandal now - so today's announcement from the Prime Minister is very welcome."
