What are Brent's housing providers doing post-Grenfell?

Never again
Brent Council has published details of registered housing providers in Brent for residents who wish to check up on fire safety following the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The amount of information varies between the providers:

Family Mosaic
Hyde Housing
L&Q Group
Network Homes
Notting Hill Housing
Octavia Housing*
Origin Housing

*As far as we have been made aware, so far, only Octavia Housing has been told that there are concerns with one of their properties following the Government’s testing of their cladding samples. There are questions surrounding the cladding used on Octavia's Elizabeth House development in Wembley. However, following an extensive check of the building the London Fire Brigade has advised Octavia that Elizabeth House does not require evacuation nor immediate removal of cladding.

The Government has said that it will notify the relevant registered housing provider and the council of any other blocks in Brent which have concerns over cladding, once samples have been tested, and the council will publish any new information we receive widely – including on this web page LINK

The only good thing is that all the Social housing tenants live on the first 4 floors, with a separate poor doors entrance. This building has no artistic merit, have no idea where the architect trained but clearly is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. It's not pretty at all. But hey they got sprinklers and they say it's ok, lets hope none of them have Hotpoint fridges that may catch fire. Good luck with this one then.
