In light of the tragic incidents at Grenfell Tower in Kensington whom my thoughts and prayers go out to local councillors have asked for a review into the cladding used in the 136 residential blocks.
This is of particular concern to myself as we have four 8 storey blocks in Sawyers Close each containing 48 flats.
I am delighted to report back that none of these blocks contain the Aluminium Composite Material cladding that is subject to DCLG testing. Instead the cladding used is a rendered finish on mesh backing with mineral wool insulation. I have been informed that this has good fire resistant properties.
