On 9th October we organised a meeting in the Community Centre to discuss fire safety concerns with Camden Council. Over 40 people heard from Paul Leavey, Quality Assurance Team and responsible for fire safety; and Meric Apac, Cabinet Member for Housing; as well as contributions from two of our local councillors, Oliver Lewis and Sian Berry.
Grace Livingstone from the TRA presented the main points that had arisen in conversations with Camden since summer. People who came along strongly expressed their thoughts and priorities on what needed to be done, particularly about the need to keep the roof fire exits open, and to repair the walkways between blocks. You can read a summary of the meeting here.
We will be following up all the points raised and decided over the coming months, including a walk around the Estate with the fire brigade, as well as a meeting with Pellings, the company who will be reviewing fire safety on the Estate and suggesting related works.
