Next steps

Following the Grenfell Tower fire in London in 2017, Norwich City Council commissioned a flat-by-flat fire safety review across all its tower blocks (a total of 454 flats).

This review was carried out by surveyors from NPS Norwich Ltd, with the support of Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.

The findings of the review was considered by the city council’s cabinet on Wednesday 17 January 2018. You can read the report here. The recommendations detailed in the review are now underway.
