Council and fire service aim to boost fire safety

25 January 2021
Residents of council-managed properties are being reminded to clear communal spaces of clutter, which can be a fire hazard.
Cllr Barry Johnson, Cabinet member for housing, said: "Keeping our residents safe is our priority at all times, and in the wake of the tragedy at Grenfell a number of legislative changes have been introduced. We have reviewed safety measures around managing communal areas and sought advice from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.
