Fire safety in Westminster

Fire safety in Westminster

We understand that you have questions about your building following the fire at Grenfell Tower so we have put together some frequently asked questions (updated on 16 August 2017) based on those you have already asked us, to help answer them.

In addition to all of the actions we are undertaking, we again ask that you remain vigilant and take the following steps to ensure your safety:

• Keep corridors free of any obstruction
• Place any large items of rubbish in metal bins located away from the building
• Do not use BBQs on roofs, balconies (including private balconies) and in communal gardens as this is strictly prohibited.

To ensure your safety and the safety of others in your building, we ask you to continue to be mindful and do everything you can to prevent fire risks in your home.

How can I find out more?

If you have any questions, we are happy to help. For more information, you can email info@cwh.org.uk or speak to our dedicated team at the Little Venice estate office. The team will be available Monday to Friday from 9am - 5pm with late opening until 6.30pm on Wednesdays.

We would like to thank you for your patience during this difficult time and we look forward to working with you on these important matters.

Jonathan Cowie
Chief Executive
