Where can I get information on fire safety in my council home?

Following the tragic events of the Grenfell Tower fire in London we have received a number of enquiries about the fire safety of flats within East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s housing stock.

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council does not have any high-rise tower blocks.

However, we have produced this information leaflet for those tenants and leaseholders living in Wilbert Court, Beverley, Kingston Rise, Willerby and Eastgate Flats, Goole, which are four storeys or more and considered medium-rise flats.

None of the council’s homes have been externally over-clad using a rain screen cladding system similar to that believed to have been used in the Grenfell Tower fire in London.
