This Labour Council hasn't invested in its housing stock so is unlikely of carried out these ridiculous modifications. Which were carried out to appease the green agenda.

Ah but carra what about the complaints from residents of one of the blocks in the town about the overflowing wheely bins,it may have been Willowfield tower,the panic that would cause with people rushing to get out thinking the worst could well lead to deaths.

Why has it took a disaster like the fire in the Grenfell tower in north Kensington for the leaders of all councils in the uk, to give permission for safety checks to be carried out on the tower blocks in their council controlled districts and boroughs. Checks on all these tower blocks including the ones in Harlow should of been carried out regularly regardless of the cost. The safety of the residents comes first not profit making.

Completely agree with you d.p.l. Frankly Housing Officers do ward walkabouts twice a year - how difficult would it be to do safety checks and check fire alarms. Bearing in mind apparently only two tower blocks have them - I suggests this is put right urgently. I would also point out that some of the same issues are relevant in other blocks that are only 3,4,5 or 6 stories high! Surely it would not be hard to work with our fire service on this!
