MHCLG provides monthly updates on the Building Safety Programme. The data indicates that there were 223 privately-owned tall buildings in England comprised of residential blocks, hotels and student blocks with unsafe ACM cladding in England in April 2019. I understand that around half of the total number of buildings are located in London. Official sub-national statistics are not published.

Of the 223 private sector buildings identified with unsafe ACM cladding, 21 have started remediation work; 121 have a remediation plan in place but works have not started; 41 have reported an intent to remediate and are developing plans, and 40 buildings remain with unclear remediation plans. This is in addition to the 43 private sector blocks that have completed remediation work as of 30 April 2019.
