Fire risk assessments

We have completed risk assessments In order to help ensure the safety of residents and visitors, and to comply with current legislation.

This includes a general assessment of the main hazards and details of the control measures put in place to minimise risk in the event of a fire.

Tower blocks

After the major fire at Grenfell Tower, we have reassured residents living in tower blocks about the fire safety measures we take.

We also sent out a letter to tower block residents (pdf)
