What is the Building Safety Fund?
In March 2020, the Government announced a £1 billion Building Safety Fund for the removal, repair or replacement of facades and other materials (including rain screens, decorative finishes and external wall insulation) on residential buildings over 18m tall.
We have identified that all residential buildings on the Cromer Street Estate are over 18m tall and meet the criteria to to bid for government funding for facade repairs and replacement.
Due to the large costs involved with the government bid, we have asked the Leader of the Council for approval.
The Leader will make a decision on Wednesday 14 October 2020.
