Barnet to remove Granville cladding

Barnet Council has said it will be removing the cladding from the outside of three blocks of flats at Granville Road, following confirmation that it does not meet the required fire saftey standard.

Barnet Council say they have been informed by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) that the type of cladding system used on the three Granville Road tower blocks did not meet the required standard, along with over 100 other tower blocks across the country.

The council has now written to the residents at Granville Road, to let them know that they are awaiting more detailed feedback on the technical tests.

The council says there are already plans in place for the cladding to be removed. Preparatory works have begun on site and cladding removal will begin on August 14.

A statement from the council said: “It is our intention to replace the cladding system as quickly as we can. We are following DCLG guidance and exploring options to enable us to put replacement cladding in place as soon as possible.”
