Petition: Help us ban combustible cladding for good
It's been over a year since the Grenfell Tower fire, and 144 socially owned tower blocks still have unsafe cladding.
So far, the government has talked a good game, but its actions haven’t gone far enough. It’s pledged £400 million to fully fund the removal and replacement of cladding – but the money is coming from the Affordable Homes Programme. There must be no trade-off between necessary affordable homes being built and homes being kept safe.
Please sign our petition asking the government to:
- issue a ban on combustible cladding and provide clarity on what cladding is safe
- put a firm deadline in place for when the removal and replacement of cladding must be completed
- make sure the £400m promised to remove unsafe cladding is distributed quickly and not taken from the Affordable Homes Programme.
Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, must make these guarantees right away – starting with an immediate ban on all combustible cladding.
Join us to say that anything less is not good enough – far from it.
Thank you. Your submission was successful.
