Croydon residents told to cough up £2m to replace Grenfell-style cladding

“The government or the council should enforce the private building to pay for the cladding as it’s their mistake” says one of the residents who were told to foot £2m bill to replace Grenfell-style cladding in a Croydon building.

Health And Safety: Only three tower blocks with the same ‘flammable’ cladding as Grenfell have had the panels replaced

JUST three tower blocks with the same “dangerous” and “flammable” cladding as Grenfell have had the panels replaced since the tragedy last year, MPs heard today.

Housing Secretary Sajid Javid said that, of the 312 blocks tested for fire safety, a massive 299 had failed. He insisted that cladding was being removed from a “number of buildings” and “replaced slowly.”

However, his Labour shadow John Healey pointed to an update from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government admitting that only three tower blocks had had new cladding fitted.

During housing questions in the Commons, he said: “More than seven months after the Grenfell Tower fire, it should shame ministers that only three tower blocks with dangerous cladding have been replaced.

“Ministers have been off the pace at every stage in their response to the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower.

“Only one in four Grenfell survivors have a new permanent home, the government still can’t confirm how many high-rise buildings are unsafe and ministers are refusing to help with any funding for essential fire safety work in the blocks they do know are dangerous.

“It’s simply not good enough.”

Justice4Grenfell campaign group director Judy Bolton told the Star that the figures were “really concerning.”

She said: “In the wake of Grenfell and the tragic loss of life, I would have hoped that local government and authorities would have seen this to be a priority in protecting people’s lives. It is inexcusable and neglect.”
