Reassurance for residents following the Grenfell tower block fire in London

We would like to assure all our residents living in each of our 48 tower blocks that their safety is our absolute priority

Des Murray, Assistant Chief Executive of North Lanarkshire Council, said: 

"In line with guidance from Scottish Fire and Rescue, we have developed robust fire and safety procedures to help safeguard those living in our high rise accommodation. This includes caretaker staff being fully fire warden trained, safety guidance issued to all residents and regular fire risk assessments carried out.

"In addition, North Lanarkshire was the first local authority to replace plastic cable ducting with metal ducting for added safety.

"I would like to reassure people living in our tower blocks that we take all precautions to minimise the risk of fire and we work closely with our tenants and colleagues in the fire service to ensure the towers are a safe environment to live in."
