Fire Safety Update – statement
Following the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in London, our deepest sympathies go out to all those families affected.
We understand that many of our residents may have concerns or questions about fire safety at this time and our staff are available to discuss these with you.
We want to reassure you that as a landlord, we take the safety of all our residents very seriously and already undertake a number of regular fire safety checks across all of our homes and buildings. These include fire risk assessments, regular fire alarm system checks and testing, and ensuring clear access to escape routes for all buildings with communal areas.
There has been a lot of speculation in the press and media about the type of cladding used on the high rise blocks like Grenfell Tower. We have checked all our properties and we can confirm that none are clad with the type of materials used in the refurbishment of Grenfell Tower.
We will of course be carefully considering the full findings outlined in the ongoing investigation report and implementing any necessary Government recommendations when published.
