We are grateful to members who have previously provided us with cladding data thus far. The data is now being extensively quoted in the media and Parliament, making regular updates vital. Jointly with ARMA, we are also now preparing a new set of communication and education assets and content (which will be made available to members and available to leaseholders via our website), further information on this will be announced in due course.
As part of a wider proactive reputation PR campaign, to support all ongoing lobbying and public affairs campaigns, this new call for evidence will ensure that as an industry, our messaging and our calls to action are consistent and united. The more data we gather, the more accurate the picture we have, and the more evidence we have to communicate and demonstrate the scale of the problem and how the issues should be addressed, as well as heading off any potential negative or misguided media coverage.
If you have provided this data in the past, we are now asking for an updated dataset, with three new columns of information required on your buildings, for which you have already provided data on – you may copy and paste the new columns onto your previously submitted spreadsheet and re-send to us. If you have not previously provided data and would like to, please do so for your current situation. ARMA will also be asking for this information – note you only need to supply it once to either us or ARMA.
We will require your completed forms back by the close of play Tuesday 20th April 2021.
