Work is currently underway to remove the aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding from three tower blocks in the borough – Ferrier Point, Nicholls Point and Tanner Point. This is a substantial piece of work and the council has ensured that all council members and affected residents have been kept up to date with any developments relating to this.
Councillor McAlmont said: “I am disappointed that Councillor John Gray has resigned from the Fire Safety Scrutiny Committee. Both myself and Councillor Terence Paul, lead member for housing invited him to retract his resignation as he has previously described the meetings as ‘positive and constructive’.
“As Chair, I take this role very seriously and I want to ensure all fire safety works are carried out to a high standard and completed as quickly as possible for the safety of our residents. The Task and Finish Group is satisfied that the council has been clear and transparent with its ongoing work to improve fire safety in the three council owned blocks with aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding.”
