I‘d like to know the cost of all work undertaken to check buildings for fire safety, including testing of cladding components, following the Grenfell Tower fire on 14th June 2017.
Where possible, I’d like this to be broken down into costs by type – for example, costs incurred due to sending cladding for testing, costs incurred through inspections and costs incurred through remedial works.
If any additional costs have been paid due to relocation of residents (in hotel rooms or other temporary accommodation), please include and specify this as well.
In the case of ongoing works please simply include the budget set aside for the project(s).
Please include all costs even if the money is to be paid back by or has already been reimbursed from central government (for example, the DCLG).
Devon County Council is not a housing stock holding authority and have not been required by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG ) to carry out a testing or inspection regime. Therefore we do not hold this information.
However, as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire the Council is reviewing its property portfolio and fire safety processes and procedures.
