The latest figures from Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC), as of 21 May states that the number of households from (a) Barandon Walk, (b) Testerton Walk, (c) Hurstway Walk, (d) Treadgold House and (e) Bramley House who currently require permanent rehousing as a result of the Grenfell Fire within the Wider Grenfell Rehousing Policy is as follows:

(a) Barandon Walk: 38

(b) Testerton Walk: 24

(c) Hurstway Walk: 21

(d) Treadgold House:2

(e) Bramley House: 3

72 of these households are in temporary accommodation, 14 of these households are in hotels and two in serviced apartments.

39 households from these buildings have moved back to their original residence or into another permanent property.

We are working with RBKC to ensure residents are able to return to their homes where possible. We have allocated £15 million of funds in the last Budget, which will be matched by RBKC, to invest into the Lancaster West Estate.
