Grenfell Tower: Canterbury City Council to invest £1 million in fire safety

Canterbury City Council have announced that, following the Grenfell Tower incident, £1 million will be spent towards improving the fire safety of high-rise blocks in the district.

Fire detection systems will be improved, and some buildings will also be fitted with sprinklers.

Cllr Joe Howes, Vice Chairman of the council’s Community Committee, said “where improvements can be made, they have to come up with robust plans to make sure we reach the very highest standards”.

He continued: “we decided not to wait until the various inquiries into the Grenfell tragedy have been reported and opted to get on with it.”

Improvements will also be made to prevent fires, and make it easier for people to escape.
