There are more concerns over the rehoming of survivors of the Grenfell disaster and those from the surrounding estate. It's after claims some people are being told their only option is to move back to the area where at least 80 people died. Joe Delaney from the Grenfell Action Group says Kensington and Chelsea council's actions are futhering the damage and upset for the community.
Deputy Leader of the Council, Cllr Kim Taylor Smith, said: “We are doing everything humanly possible to help everyone affected by the Grenfell fire – either directly, or in this case, indirectly.
“We recognise that hotels are not a suitable place for anyone long-term, especially not for families with children. That’s why we are committed to helping residents move back to their homes, spending millions to make them even nicer places to live.
“We hope that people will want to return to their homes on the walkways so they can begin rebuilding their lives, though we recognise that this will not be the case for some who will still find it difficult. That’s why we’re opening a consultation on plans to give them priority status on the housing register for another local home.”
