Re-wrapping of Grenfell Tower

In response to Government advice on the Covid-19 pandemic, MHCLG has paused the re-wrapping of Grenfell Tower to avoid non-essential staff going on-site or using public transport. The re-wrapping progressed well in March, and the remaining ‘older’ wrapping on the lower floors is in good condition. MHCLG do not believe pausing re-wrapping is a cause for concern.

Environmental checks of the air and soil around Grenfell Tower MHCLG were undertaking environmental checks around the Grenfell Tower site. The checks are a two-stage programme investigating possible land contamination around the site and identify any potential risk to health. Stage 1 found that levels of chemicals in the soil with those generally found in London. Additionally, MHCLG has been undertaking air quality monitoring since June 2017 and hasn’t found any cause for concern.

These processes are being reviewed to identify when they can safely continue this monitoring in response to advice surrounding Covid-19 from the Government.
