Does Florrie’s Law not apply to things like the Great Arthur curtain wall replacement? I really need to get out more, I had never heard of it. From the article:

"...Eric Pickles, then secretary of state for communities and local government, introducing Florrie’s Law, which caps the amount local authority leaseholders have to pay for repairs to £10,000 (or £15,000 in London) over a five-year period.
But there’s a caveat: it only applies if repairs are partly funded by a central government grant. If not, the council can pass the entire cost to leaseholders."

Is that the case here? Excuse my ignorance. I know the leaseholders are having to shell out a whole lot more than £15,000.
