All council tenants in Haringey will now receive a letter to inform them of dangerous window safety catches following calls for action by Liberal Democrats. Homes for Haringey are writing this week to 14,000 residents advising them to check their windows for faults.
The action by Haringey Council comes after Liberal Democrats sent a letter and met with the Chief Executive of Homes for Haringey Paul Bridge last week to voice their concerns after the death of a child falling out of a window on the Broadwater Farm estate.
Cllr Laura Edge, Liberal Democrat Housing Spokesperson, commented:
“I am glad that Homes for Haringey has, following Liberal Democrat calls for action, decided to write to all council tenants to notify them of this matter. The safety of tenants must be paramount and I urge Haringey Council to be as proactive as possible to ensure a repeat of this awful tragedy does not happen again.”
