The Housing (Cladding Remediation) (Scotland) Bill has been introduced. The bill seeks to reduce the risk of life from unsafe cladding on people’s homes and will give powers to ministers to assess and remediate certain types of buildings with unsafe cladding. Ministers will then need to record these assessments and any remediation works completed in a register, and the bill also allows ministers to create a responsible developers scheme. The bill has been published as introduced with explanatory notes, alongside a policy memorandum, financial memorandum, delegated powers memorandum and a statement on legislative competence. The Scottish Government has also published a Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment, Equality Impact Assessment and Children’s Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment.
