Since the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower, many councils have been urgently carrying out fire safety checks on their tower blocks and other buildings that have building panels (cladding) to ensure the appropriate safety and response measures are in place. In accordance with Government guidelines we have checked all our buildings and can confirm that all our buildings fully comply with the recommendations of the fire officer and building control.

The Mayor of Eastleigh, Cllr Mo Sollitt has sent a letter of condolence on behalf of residents of the Borough to the Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea expressing our deepest sympathies.
