In light of the fire at a high rise block in London, Together Housing would like to reassure all tenants and nearby residents of any high rise blocks that they are confident everything possible is done to ensure they are protected and kept safe.
However, as a precaution, Together Housing are double checking all procedures over the coming weeks and will be re-issuing fire safety advice to tenants.
Together Housing has cladding on a number of its properties and, following speculation in the media, understand tenant’s concern about whether it is fire resistant.
In construction, Together Housing have taken every step possible to ensure the materials they use are fire resistant and the design safe. The details from the Grenfell Tower Fire are not yet known but Together Housing are reviewing this on a daily basis as details become available and will be keeping tenants informed through digital channels.
Every day, the Council do a wide range of jobs you may not always be aware of. Some jobs, such as street cleaning, may be done in the early hours of the morning, while others, such as pest control, licensing and road safety may not be seen directly – but all contribute to making Calderdale a better place to live.
From Wednesday 1 to Friday 3 February, Calderdale Council will be out in Elland on the key themes of safer, cleaner, greener with partners including Together Housing,West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire Service.
Let’s be safer
We will be focusing on a range of things, including tackling problem parking outside schools, safety checks at bars and food hygiene inspections.
Let’s be cleaner
We will be doing a range of activities including litter picking, bin emptying, jet washing and de-odourising, plus spot fines for littering and fouling.
Let’s be greener
Some of the activities which will take place will include advice on recycling and pest control to residents and businesses. We will also be checking on air pollution.
