Sprinklers to be installed in 25 tower blocks in Croydon in response to the Grenfell Tower disaster | London

This council is committed to installing fire sprinklers in 25 council blocks with 10 storeys or taller because last week’s tragedy showed we all need to bolster fire safety measures for our residents.

I will also be writing to the Government challenging them to give us more support in our plans to make our borough safer.

In the meantime, we will continue to work with London Fire Brigade to ensure our housing continues to meet fire safety standards, and we will respond to any recommendations that emerge from the Grenfell Tower investigation.

– Councillor Alison Butler, deputy leader and cabinet member for homes, regeneration and planning
