Calderdale Council has called for a local fire safety review after the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower, London.

An initial progress report is now available, read: PDFCalderdale fire safety review 2017 - update [PDF 432KB] .

Calderdale Council does not own any housing stock. We do continue to work closely with Together Housing and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service to ensure that residents are safe in their homes.

The review aims to gather information about buildings and fire safety in Calderdale. This is to reassure residents and make recommendations for future work. We want to learning from the Grenfell Tower tragedy and ensure people are protected.

The review involves checking premises across Calderdale to ensure they are fully compliant with fire safety requirements and fire risk assessments, currently in place. Premises include:

  • high rise buildings;
  • nursing and residential homes;
  • schools; and
  • Council owned buildings.

If you want to get involved, email: firesafetyreview@calderdale.gov.uk by 31st August 2017.

The final outcomes of the fire safety review will be discussed by the Council Cabinet at the end of the year. However, any required actions identified during the review process will be acted on sooner, where possible.
