Fund title: Building Safety Fund
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Building owners are invited to register for the government’s £1billion fund to remove and replace unsafe non-ACM cladding systems on high-rise residential buildings
Register by 31 July 2020
The Building Safety Fund is aimed at making sure tenants, leaseholders and residents living in high-rise buildings are safe, and feel safe, by remediating unsafe non-ACM* cladding systems.
The fund will meet the costs of removing and replacing unsafe non-ACM cladding systems on residential buildings in the private and social sector that are 18 metres and over and do not comply with building regulations. The fund is to be used where building owners (or other entities legally responsible for making buildings safe) are unable to do so.
The funding can also be used for mixed-use residential and commercial developments. It will not apply to buildings under 18 metres in height and other non-residential buildings, such as hotels, hospitals and buildings where there are no residential leaseholders.
The government is now asking potential applicants to register for the fund, in advance of the full application process opening by the end of July 2020.
In the private sector, registration is open to building owners, freeholders or the responsible entity for the building. In the social sector, the registration process is open to registered providers of social housing, including local authorities.
Note that, while leaseholders are not able to apply individually for the fund, there is a feedback form to enable them to register the details of their building if they are concerned that the owner of their building is not taking sufficient action to remediate unsafe cladding.
*ACM = Aluminium Composite Material. This fund is for non-ACM cladding only.
