Principles agreed for deciding future of Grenfell Tower site

A set of principles to guide the forthcoming consultations on the future of the Grenfell Tower site have been agreed between the council, the community and the Government.

The principles ensure bereaved families and the local community will help determine the future of the site.

Kensington and Chelsea Council will ensure work on the site is taken alongside improvement to the Lancaster West estate.

Cllr Elizabeth Campbell, leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, said: ‘Since day one of my leadership I have been clear – the council will listen every step of the way to the survivors, the bereaved, and the wider community and assist in any way it can to ensure that a lasting memorial is put in place.’

Shahin Sadafi, chair of Grenfell United, added: ‘We are pleased that eight months on from the fire we finally have agreement that the bereaved, survivors and community will be at the heart of deciding the legacy of the site. We hope working together to create a fitting memorial will be part of a healing process for everyone affected.

'The Government and Kensington and Chelsea council have treated this issue with dignity and respect. We can only hope the government applies the same seriousness to our need for truth and justice at the Inquiry, this includes listening to our requests for changes to ensure a thorough Inquiry.'
