Sidcup Place

16 June (Part 2) - How many old tower blocks are there in Bexleyheath and Sidcup?

It is reported on a local Conservative website that Bexley Councillor Teresa O’Neill has met the two Conservative MPs for Old Bexley & Sidcup and Bexleyheath & Crayford to discuss among other things the horrific fire in Kensington.

It appears to have escaped her attention that the only old tower block in the borough that has been externally cladded to improve its appearance and thermal efficiency is in Thamesmead.

I heard at first hand the Director of Peabody Housing say that he regards the renovation done by its predecessor company, Gallions, to be unsatisfactory; in what way he did not state in any detail.

Teresa O’Neill should be busy meeting the MP for Erith & Thamesmead and liaising closely with Peabody people so that she can hopefully reassure tower block occupants rather than grandstanding with the two Conservative MPs from the south. Maybe she has but if so, making political capital has taken precedence. Where’s the Press Release to set out current fire risks in the borough’s potentially vulnerable properties?

Bexley Council’s web page doesn’t do much to ally any fears there might be.
