The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)
The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has announced the extension of the non-ACM Building Safety Fund to 30 June 2021.
The key areas to note are;
- Once projects are agreed to proceed they must be able to begin by 30 September 2021.
- The MHCLG has set out advice on the eligibility of required works and the eligibility of building.
- The EWS1 form is not a replacement for a fire risk assessment and this should be carried out by a competent professional.
- Where risk assessments have relied on the BS8414 tests for Kingspan materials, the wall system assessments should be reviewed in light of those being withdrawn.
