Fire safety

On this page you'll find fire safety compliancy information for our residential blocks that are six storeys or more.

Following the tragic events at Grenfell Tower, a full review has been undertaken and we are confident that arrangements are in place to ensure compliancy with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Gravesham Borough Council, as your landlord, wishes to offer reassurance that servicing and maintenance regimes are in place to meet all regulatory and legislative requirements.

For more information about servicing and maintenance regimes for each residential block, please see below:
