Cladding on buildings

We all remember the awful scenes from the Grenfell Fire, and we should be doing all we can to stop anything like that from happening again. This will mean that some buildings in Scotland will need to be reclad, but we believe it would be unfair to expect homeowners and lease holders to be expected to foot the bill for this work.
That is why we welcome the decision from the UK government to place the obligation on developers to pay for recladding buildings, which will protect homeowners and leaseholders from these costs. We are also glad the SNP have followed the UK Government in doing so.
The Scottish Conservatives would undertake an extensive audit to identify all buildings where combustible cladding is used, not just high-rise properties, and support remedial work where it is needed.
