Martin Corbett, Lewisham Borough’s new fire commander addressed Lewisham Council last night. At a meeting of the full Overview & Scrutiny Committee attended by the Mayor and Cabinet members a programme of work was agreed to monitor and ensure fire safety in tall buildings and more generally remains at the very top of Lewisham Council’s priorities.
Chair of the Committee, Councillor Alan Hall said: “The Borough Commander has given us the reassurance that we requested. I am pleased that the Council has agreed to keep this at the very top of our priorities as new information is emerging every day. It is important that the response to Grenfell Tower includes non residential tall buildings and both public and private housing.”
