Re­as­sur­ance on fire safety in flats

Lennox Herald - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I’m writ­ing on be­half of the West Dun­bar­ton­shire Ten­ants and Res­i­dents Or­gan­i­sa­tion in re­la­tion to West Dun­bar­ton­shire Coun­cil’s re­sponse to fire safety fears in multi-storey flats in the lo­cal author­ity fol­low­ing the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower in Lon­don.

Through li­ai­son meet­ings and emails, se­nior of­fi­cers of WDC along­side the Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice have given re­as­sur­ances over the safety of mul­ti­storey flats in re­la­tion to the cladding used and fire safety pro­ce­dures.

Much dis­cus­sion took place in the past sev­eral months, with many ten­ant and res­i­dents as­so­ci­a­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives shar­ing ten­ant and res­i­dent con­cerns.

We thank the coun­cil for the prompt re­sponse with open dis­cus­sions and up-to-date in­for­ma­tion. Harry McCor­mack, WDTRO
