Publication date:

Request: 

I would like to know how many blocks of apartments or flats owned by Thurrock Council are currently in need of inspection to assess the safety of the building’s cladding.
To clarify, by ‘blocks of apartments or flats’ I’m referring to any Thurrock Council-owned building that houses multiple residences.
As part of my request I would like to know the following:

1. How many council-owned blocks there are in the district where cladding on the building still has to be tested to determine the safety of the cladding material used;
2. The names and addresses of each of the council-owned blocks that fall into this category.

Response: 

1. The council have been proactive in identifying and reviewing external wall system that are on the council owned residential building across the borough, all required investigations have been now been completed where required.

2. Please see attached document Appendix A
