The Policy looks to rehouse those tenants living in those blocks who do not feel able to remain in, or return to their homes. It awards high priority to those tenants so they can move to another Council or housing association home. High priority means under the Wider Grenfell Rehousing Policy, residents who wish to move can apply for 900 points to join the Housing Register. Nine hundred points gives residents the priority equivalent to someone on the Housing Register who needs to be rehoused because of a serious medical problem.

We have produced an easy guide to explain how you can apply to be rehoused under the Wider Grenfell Rehousing Policy.

Wider Grenfell rehousing progress update

This graphic provides the latest update on rehousing residents in the Wider Grenfell area.

There are no remaining households living in hotels or other emergency accommodation from the wider Grenfell area (Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk, Hurstway, Bramley House and Treadgold House).

Households in temporary accommodation who do not wish to move back to their original home will continue to look for permanent homes using the Council’s Home Connections website, where they can express an interest in properties that meet their needs.
