Response to the evacuation of Ledbury Estate in Peckham, London

Larissa Reed, Executive Director for Neighbourhoods, Communities & Housing said: “We are closely monitoring the situation at the Ledbury Estate in Peckham, and we will review our own properties and practices in light of any information from Southwark Council’s own investigation.

We want to reassure tenants and leaseholders that their health and safety is our highest priority. Brighton & Hove City Council high rise blocks are inspected every year to make sure they meet current safety standards. All council homes in the city have 100% gas safety compliance.

If residents have any specific health and safety concerns about their council home they can speak to our Housing Customer Services Team on 01273 293030.”
