Our thoughts are with those households and families affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower, West London.
We would like to reassure residents that the fire arrangements for our blocks are designed in compliance with current building regulations. Information is provided in each building on what to do in the event of a fire and residents are asked to familiarise themselves with the details specific to their building and follow the directions given.
Hyde has a comprehensive fire risk assessment programme in place which has included additional in-depth fire risk surveys for our high rise, complex and sheltered properties.
We work in partnership with the London Fire Brigade and periodically undertake joint property inspections with them. We are confident that our buildings are safe and we will be undertaking additional inspections over and above those scheduled in the coming weeks.
As always we encourage residents with any specific concerns about their home to contact us.
Further fire safety advice from the London Fire Brigade is available on their website: http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/Documents/FSITH_leaflet.pdf
