SANDRA WHITE, MSP for Glasgow Kelvin, has today welcomed an announcement from the Minister for Local Government, Housing and Planning on support for buildings with cladding.
Following widescale issues identified by owners of clad buildings and mortgage lenders, the Scottish Government has announced that a Single Building Assessment will be established, funded by the Scottish Government, that will remove the problems currently experienced.
Glasgow Kelvin SNP MSP Sandra White said:
“This is extremely welcome news. Along with colleagues across Glasgow I have been pressing not just the Scottish Government but the UK Government, UK Finance, the mortgage industry, the insurance industry and the developers to provide support.
“Homeowners across my constituency have been living with problem cladding for some time and the stress has undoubtedly taken its toll with many unable to move or insure their properties. Added to this the very real concerns regarding the safety of the buildings, this has been an extremely difficult time.
“I hope that this announcement will provide some piece of mind and enable homeowners to start to move forward with remediation of their buildings.”
