DCLG have written to local authorities following Grenfell Tower disaster.  They have asked that the letter be shared with residential landlords.

  • In addition to the checks on residential blocks owned by social landlords, DCLG are offering private owners of residential buildings an opportunity to test cladding on blocks over 18 metres high through arrangements put in place with the Building Research Establishment (BRE).
  • These checks will be paid for by DCLG, and the information will be available to DCLG from BRE.
  • Where owners consider that they may have concerns about cladding on buildings over 18 metres high, they should follow the process in the letter.
  • DCLG have provided an email for enquiries: PRShousingchecks@communities.gsi.gov.uk

DCLG are keen to reach out to as many people as possible and the attached letter provides you with further information on the service they are offering. Should you wish to make use of this service, please fill out and return the form
