Wandsworth Council has the Power to make Berkeley Homes pay for Flammable Cladding Removal at Chelsea Bridge Wharf
The government has lost patience with private owners of high-rise buildings who have failed to remove dangerous Grenfell-style cladding and has given councils the power to strip the materials off themselves and reclaim the multimillion-pound cost from the landlords.
The housing secretary, James Brokenshire, has acted after months of warnings to the landlords of at least 100 high-rise apartment blocks, hotels and student residences who have failed to produce plans to remove the dangerous cladding and have threatened to pass on the cost to leaseholders.
A total of 289 privately owned high-rise residential blocks have been identified as using similar aluminium composite (ACM) cladding to Grenfell. At only 40 of these have the panels so far been removed or started to be removed. At a further 147 there are plans underway or in development to do so, but the status of 102 buildings remains unclear.https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/nov/29/councils-cleared-to-rip-grenfell-style-cladding-from-private-buildings
