  • Cladding to be removed from high rise homes in Pendleton

    Salford City Council has announced that cladding is to be removed from its high rise homes in Pendleton

    City Mayor of Salford, Paul Dennett said “The disaster in Grenfell Tower fire has raised questions about the safety of tower blocks nationally

    “Government tests are underway, but it is already clear that the aluminium composite cladding on our blocks must be removed and we are pressing ahead with our plans. We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps.

    “Replacing the cladding is a complex operation, and Pendleton Together will identify contractors to begin the job.

    “Additional fire safety measures have also been put in place by Pendleton Together, who manage the homes on behalf of the council.”

    “They are in contact with affected residents offering advice and support including 24/7 patrols on each block, as well strengthened safety arrangements until the cladding can be removed.”

    Mayor Dennett said, “The decision to remove the cladding on the council’s nine tower blocks is the right and moral thing to do. There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents.
