The Government will take on responsibility for the Grenfell Tower site, Marsham Street has announced.
The Government should provide funding to enable councils to fit sprinklers in all high-rise residential buildings to avoid another tragedy like the Grenfell Tower fire, MPs have argued today.
The removal of combustible cladding from tower blocks could be making buildings more dangerous, experts have warned MPs.
The number of councils tendering for fire safety work has shot up in the year since the Grenfell disaster, according to the latest figures.
After Grenfell, changes to governance and consultation were the recommendations of a study for Kensington & Chelsea RLBC by the Centre for Public Scrutiny, and the Democratic Society. Jacqui McKinlay explains.
Kensington and Chelsea council’s performance in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy has ‘fallen way short’, according to a new report into the rehousing of those who survived the fire.
Damage caused by Kensington and Chelsea RLBC's ‘weak’ response in the immediate aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire will be ‘difficult to repair,’ a report has suggested.
The leader of Kensington and Chelsea council today said her authority will assist the Grenfell inquiry ‘to expose the lessons’ from the tragedy so all councils may apply them.
Local councils will have extra responsibilities for monitoring the safety of higher-risk residential buildings (HRRBs), under sweeping, wholesale reforms to the regulatory landscape proposed by the final Hackitt report, published today.
The replacement and removal of unsafe cladding by councils will be fully funded by the Government, at an estimated cost of £400m.
