MIKE HEDGES MS QUESTIONS WELSH GOVERNMENT MINISTER ON CLADDING AND ASKS FOR UPDATE
Speaking after Business Questions at the Senedd, local Swansea East MS Mike Hedges said…. ‘it is now 6 years since the tragedy at Grenville Towers and people in my constituency still do not know when work will be carried out, or in some cases, what if any their contribution to the costs will be. I am asking for a statement to provide some clarity for residents who have now had 6 years of uncertainty.
Companies who made profit from these developments should not shilly shally on their obligations – they should get on and do the work!’
Mike Hedges MS – I’m asking for a statement to provide an update on proposals regarding the remediation of cladding on buildings. I have a constituent who believes the solution is simple, and that it just needs the Welsh Government to implement sections 116 – 125 of the Building Safety Act 2022. He further believes that the problem is being solved in England. I’m requesting an update in the statement on how developers like Bellway are working with residents on developments such as Altamar and the progress being made
Reply from Lesley Griffiths
In relation to the cladding on buildings request, you’ll be aware that the Minister for Climate Change, who’s got responsibility for this, is continuing to work very closely with developers and with leaseholders. My understanding is that formal documentation with the Home Builders Federation has now been shared and further comments are being awaited from developers.
I have also written to Julie James
