London fire begs ask if high story flats are to be built,when fire dept.ladders reach 6th floor,not more.Does hose-pipe seem inadequate soln? Had regulations been adhered to the fire would have been contained within the flat where it started but a refurbishment of the tower block undermined fire mitigation measures and escape routes. These issues were raised with the council landlord and contractor by the residents' association during the refurbishment. There will almost certainly be corporate manslaughter charges.
what will happen to the residents of north Kensignton, west london? The only residents affected are the unlucky people who lived in grenfell house, the tower block that burnt, they are at the moment in temporay accomodation, they have been promised new housing "locally" this could mena anywhere in london.
Why have lots of White people left London? where they told to leave or hate immigration or just prefer to liv in the countryside/coast/Spain? Those who can afford the housing costs (not Council property) in London are quite often 'white' - and many are not!!! So your idea is not accurate. Many will eventually prefer to live outside the City (especially once they have a family?) however. Right now you are seeing the people living in that tower block on TV. But that's only a comparatively small number of the overall population of London.
Can someone on income support apply for a house or flat within glasgow? You do not need to live in Glasgow to make an application for housing with the Glasgow Housing Association. You must be at least 16 years of age. If you live in Glasgow, you should register an application with a Local Housing Organisation (LHO). Click here for LHO contact details http:// If you do not live in Glasgow, you should register an application at the Local Housing Organisation for the area you want to live in. If you live too far away from Glasgow to be able to visit the office for the area you want to live in, an application form can be sent to you. You should request one from the LHO in the area of Glasgow where you would like to live. If you or anyone to be rehoused with you has a medical condition which would affect the type of housing you could consider, a medical self-certificate should be completed. More info here http:// Remember if you change addresses you need to inform the benefit offices in both areas. All the best
