RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST

I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 20th June 2018.

Please find below a summary of our findings.

Request

Is it possible to find out the final number of council or housing association buildings over 18m which were identified as having ACM cladding? And the total number inspected after the Grenfell Tower fire?

Reply

The total number of visual inspections is 545 Local Authority Blocks.

Of the above 11 properties have failed cladding tests as follows:-

4 Black Country North

2 Black Country South

4 Birmingham

1 Coventry and Solihull

Request

I understand that every public building over 18m had to be inspected by the fire service after the Grenfell Tower fire last June, so would like to find out if this has been completed – and if so how many were done – and how many were identified as being covered with aluminium composite cladding.

Reply

The number of inspections conducted on high-rise residential buildings since 14 June 2017 broken down into West Midlands Wards.

Please see below:

322 – Birmingham

91 – Black Country North

80 – Black Country South

52 – Coventry and Solihull
