Glasgow Kelvin SNP MSP Kaukab Stewart has hosted a drop-in surgery for residents in buildings affected by potentially dangerous cladding.


Residents in a number of developments, all of which have potentially dangerous cladding, were invited to attend the surgery to raise questions and receive advice from Kaukab and her constituency team, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, and representatives from property management.

Kaukab has written to residents in known buildings with potentially dangerous cladding.


The surgery took place in The Pyramid at Anderston and coincides with a survey Kaukab is running with residents on their experiences with cladding.


Commenting, Kaukab Stewart MSP said:


“I was delighted so many people attended the surgery, it was really informative to hear from residents about their own experiences. 


“I have raised this issue with the Scottish Government on several occasions, and I’m pleased that there does seem to be progress on a number of fronts now – although I would share the frustration with many residents that getting to this stage has taken a long time. 


“Many people in these buildings have put their lives on hold: they’re unable to sell their homes, they are struggling to get a mortgage, and insurance premiums have skyrocketed.  I hope the responses to my survey on this will help create a clearer picture of what life is like for residents in this situation now, and this will inform future representations I make to the government.


“I’m grateful to the representatives of the Fire Brigade and property management for coming along to offer help and advice, I know from speaking to those who attended that this was useful and help answer some of the concerns they had.”
