To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many of the flats in (a) Barandon Walk, (b) Testerton Walk, (c) Hurstway Walk, (d) Treadgold House and (e) Bramley House are waiting to be deep cleaned after the Grenfell Tower fire; and of those flats how many are (i) occupied and (ii) empty.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council (RBKC) report that over 300 properties on the Lancaster West Estate have been deep cleaned, the majority of which are located on Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk, Hurstway Walk, Treadgold House, or Bramley House.
58 properties from Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk, Hurstway Walk, Treadgold House, or Bramley House are void properties, either awaiting or currently undergoing refurbishment work, which will include deep cleaning, before they are re-let through the estate’s Local Lettings Plan. The only other properties on the estate that have not been deep cleaned are properties where the household has chosen not to accept the offer of cleaning; or properties that are not currently occupied, pending a decision from the household on whether to return to their home. Where households do choose to return home, RBKC will work with them to identify and carry out the cleaning required. No household is expected to return home before cleaning has been completed.
