750 properties involved

22 October 2019

Timber decking panels have been removed from six high-rise residential towers to comply with new advice published post-Grenfell.

The decking will be replaced with concrete tiles for 750 homes on the Warwick and Brindley estates, known as the Little Venice towers.

Three million pounds has been spent on the refurbishment, just one year after the same buildings had ACM cladding removed by the local council. 

Westminster City Council cabinet member for housing services, Councillor Andrew Smith, said, “The safety of our residents is our top priority and, as a forward-thinking council, when it comes to fire safety works we’re keeping ahead of changing building regulations.

"We’re acting swiftly and safely, doing so in a green and environmentally friendly way."
