PUBLIC MEETING ON POSSIBLE SOIL CONTAMINATION

From: Kensington and Chelsea Council

 

“We know that many people are worried about possible air pollution and soil contamination in the Grenfell area. Our top priority is to look after people’s health and protect them from harm. 

Recent media reports of an unpublished study by Professor Anna Stec suggest there may be toxic contaminants in soil near Grenfell Tower and across a wider area. This needs to be thoroughly investigated. We will take advice from both Public Health England and the Environment Agency to agree the nature and scope of any testing on this site, and elsewhere. Work on this is already under way. 

There will be a meeting on Monday 29th October from 7pm at the Kensington Hilton Hotel, Holland Park Ave, W11 4UL. Grenfell United and the community have asked for this meeting to give local people the chance to ask questions about possible soil contamination following the Grenfell tragedy. Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting and to voice any concerns they may have. 

Professor John Ashton, Director of Public Health for Kensington and Chelsea, and Professor Yvonne Doyle, Regional Director for London at Public Health England, will be there to answer questions, along with Louise Proctor from the  NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group. Other attendees will be confirmed nearer the time.”

Lancaster West Refurbishment: Procurement Workshop

What Is Procurement?

Procurement is the process of finding and acquiring works, goods and services from external sources and agreeing terms for these. This is often carried out through a tendering or competitive bidding process.

As part of the refurbishment programme on The Lancaster West Estate, the Neighbourhood Team (LWNT) and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC) will be making important decisions about who is chosen to do the work here and why.

The Residents’ Association (LWRA) have been working with LWNT to ensure that residents have a real say in the estate refurbishment and as the procurement process plays a vital role in this, we are inviting residents to join this process, become informed and help us to make these important decisions.

This will ensure the best use of the funds and the best possible quality of workmanship through a fair and measured process.

The workshop is open to all Lancaster West Estate Residents.

Paul Orett (Procurement Lead for RBKC) will be delivering the training session on Sunday 21 October from 12pm to 2pm at Kensington Leisure Centre.

 

The Session will cover:

  • Understanding the procurement process

  • Examples of good practice

  • An outline of the role of the residents association during selection

 

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

If you are interested in attending, please email info@lancwestra.com with your name and address.
