Request for Information - 2017/15800 - Post Grenfell fire safety spend

The Council has spent approximately £550k on Housing related fire safety
since the Grenfell fire.  In addition it has approved additional capital
resources totalling £30 million for the installation of sprinkler systems
and replacement cladding in affected blocks. In previous years it is
estimated that the costs amounted to some £20k per annum but it has not
been possible to ascertain the precise figure as these weren’t classified
separately in the accounts.

additional heating costs as a result of cladding removal that has
taken place since the Grenfell fire?

 

Nothing

 

 3. What percentage of the overall Council budget has been spent on fire
safety since the Grenfell fire (14 June 2017) and how does this
