Chair Welcomes Confirmation That No ‘Grenfell’ Cladding On Health & Housing Executive Properties

30 August 2017

The Chair of Mid Ulster District Council has welcomed confirmation from the Southern Health and Social Care Trust that none of its buildings are clad with the system used in the Grenfell Tower Block.

Speaking after the Trust became the third local organisation, after the Northern Health and Social Care Trust and Northern Ireland Housing Executive, to confirm the position, Councillor Kim Ashton said:

“Given the understandably high level of public concern after the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, particularly with regard to South Tyrone Hospital, the Council lobbied for this information to be made available.

“I welcome the fact that the Southern Trust has now confirmed that none of its buildings use the same cladding system, and also thank the Northern Trust and the Housing Executive for their earlier confirmation”.
