It has come to the attention of residents 0f Grenfell Tower that our local elected Councillors are misrepresenting what is actually happening to tenants and leaseholders as a result of the Grenfell Tower Improvement Works.
Councillor Blakeman, in a recent report to the Constituency Labour Party, claimed that only twelve households are resisting the works being carried out in their homes and that other residents are “furious” that those resisting the works may delay the completion date of the project.
We believe that Councillor Blakeman is merely parroting TMO propaganda on this issue, that she is working against the interests of residents in trying to minimise the level of opposition to the poor standard of work, and is not giving the true facts.
In a recent door-knocking survey carried out by concerned Grenfell Tower residents we found that 39% of households had not had the HIU work done and we believe that approx 46 households are actively resisting work being carried out as currently planned.
We are also aware that a significant number of residents who have allowed the work to be done are not satisfied with the standard of the work delivered by Rydon and many claim they felt bullied into having the work done by the TMO in the first place.
