Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I would like the answers to the following:

-How many buildings (and which ones) in The Wirral have Reynobond PE cladding on them, the same that was used in the Grenfell fire?
-How many buildings have a cladding on that’s dangerous, and which ones?
-Which buildings are currently having their cladding removed due to safety concerns?
-Are there any proposed buildings that use Reynobond PE or another form of dangerous cladding?

Yours faithfully,
Benjamin Lynch

Dear Mr Lynch

Thank you for your Freedom of Information enquiry regarding building cladding within the Wirral Borough area.

The wording of your request is very wide as it appears to cover all buildings within the Borough. Please be advised that the Council is only required to collect information on residential buildings in private ownership over 18m in height. The Registered Social housing providers provide their own returns to MHCLG.

We would be grateful if you would reduce the scope of your enquiry by clarifying specific parameters, given our comments above. Once we receive your clarification, we will ensure a response is issued within 20 working days.

Yours sincerely

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

I should have specified that I am referring specifically to buildings or blocks with over 20 residents.

If you would like me to clarify further please let me know.

Dear Mr Lynch,

 

I write to you further in relation to your recent clarification for your
FOI request regarding cladding in Wirral.

 

Officers have stated that this request would still take well in excess of
the 18.5 hours as provided by the Freedom of Information legislation and
as you specify buildings or blocks with 20+ residents this could include
care homes etc.

 

Section 16 of the FOI legislation requires us to provide you with advice
and guidance or a reduced scope in your request.

 

What we can provide you with is information on residential blocks over 18m
in height (about six storeys) which is what the team are collecting
information on at present.

 

Would this be information you are interested in receiving? Please advise.

 

Yours sincerely,
