The four residential Ledbury Towers in Peckham are to undergo a complete refurbishment, from strengthening works to replacing new lifts, windows, roofs and lighting.
These buildings were built in the sixties and since the recent Grenfell Tower fire it was highlighted that they needed reinforcement as well as other work in order to make them safe for the residents.
There was a cabinet members meeting only on 30th October 2018 where they will discuss the process and if it is said to take place. As well as how long it will take for the refurbishments to be completed. The residents welcomed the fact that leaseholders and council tenants are able to return once the work has been done without any extra fee costs. The council was ordered to continue with the work that is being carried out to the Towers.
Deputation said that it was important that both the council and the residences of the low-rises were kept informed about all the developments.
