On the Wandsworth Borough Council (WBC) website it published ‘Council leader urges Chancellor to provide financial support to leaseholders over fire safety measures’ which states that ‘Council leader Ravi Govindia has written to the Chancellor Philip Hammond in the wake of today’s Budget to request specific financial aid for Wandsworth leaseholders to help them pay their share of the cost of installing sprinklers in their homes following the Grenfell Tower tragedy’.
This has been ongoing for some time with Councillor Grimston leading the charge from the Councillor side in terms of defending leaseholders, and it might be arguable whether resident feedback is now starting to influence the WBC’s thinking about how retro-fitting water sprinklers should be paid for.
