We have written to the Leader of the Council, Cllr Carr and MP Bob Stewart to find out what the Council is doing to ensure all blocks in Bromley Borough are safe. We have also requested the Council website be updated as a matter of urgency as there is currently no information in regard to the Council’s response to Grenfell nor how concerned residents can make contact.
Cllr Carr has confirmed that an immediate review of fire and safety standards of all properties (Council and Housing Providers) in which Bromley residents are placed in Borough or beyond is underway and ongoing. Cllr Carr has also confirmed the Council website will be updated and that Bromley Council has offered help and support to Kensington Borough.
Our MP Bob Stewart has confirmed that central government has issued an instruction to all local authorities to check whether all high-rise buildings in their area have complied with recent fire orders. Further central government are identifying all high-rise buildings owned or managed by Housing Associations or Local Authorities and conducting a fire safety review of all buildings similar to Grenfell Tower.
