North Somerset and the Cladding Scandal - What’s Next?

Around 1.4 million people in our country are living in homes at a very high risk of fire. This is not an empty statistic. Knowing that you live in a building which every day risks a Grenfell tragedy, has a huge and stressful impact on residents.

Across the UK, homes and businesses have been fitted with unsafe flammable cladding - and now victims of this cladding scandal are forced to pay the price. 

A crisis that the government estimates will cost £16bn to put right - where the developers responsible are skipping out on the bill.

As the government’s new support grants fail to meet the true cost of the crisis, we’re asking what’s next for the cladding scandal?

Join Baronness Pinnock and Cllr Huw James for a discussion on what’s next for the cladding scandal - including how lawmakers in Parliament are fighting for a fairer deal for leaseholders living in unsafe buildings, and how councillors in North Somerset are working to protect residents in our area.

Baroness Pinnock is leading the charge in the House of Lords to ensure that no leaseholder or tenant has to cover the costs associated with living in a home deemed unsafe due to its cladding. 

Cllr Huw James is chair of the Housing Issues Group in North Somerset and has been working to find solutions for residents living in buildings affected by the cladding scandal in Portishead.

This event is open to all members of the public who might wish to find out more.
