WQ87623 (e) Tabled on 02/03/2023

Will the Minister clarify whether the cost of apartment blocks surveys undertaken and paid for before the Welsh Government announced that it would be organising surveys will be refunded?

Answered by Minister for Climate Change | Answered on 10/03/2023

In October last year, I issued a Written Statement outlining that, subject to certain eligibility criteria being met, survey costs would be reimbursed by the Welsh Government.

Since then, we have received 17 applications for reimbursement of surveys and issued offer letters to five responsible persons/managing agents.

It is essential all responsible persons/managing agents provide the required information to ensure officials can review the information, assess if it meets the eligibility criteria and issue offer letters, if eliglble, in a timely manner. 

We have written to 10 responsible persons/managing agents requesting further information since October 2022. 

The Welsh Government does not refund the cost of a waking watch.
