A TEAM of fire safety inspectors will inspect Barnsley’s high-rise residential buildings across the borough by the end of next year.
It comes as part of a government-driven ‘Building Risk Review’ programme - prompted by the Grenfell Tower disaster in London - that seeks to significantly increase the pace of high-rise residential inspection activity across the country.
As part of their work, the team will be contacting the responsible person for each high-rise residential building in Barnsley to arrange an inspection to assess fire safety measures.
Spokesperson Simon Dunker said: “We hope this work will provide reassurance to residents we’re continuing to work to effect changes identified by the Grenfell inquiry and that residents’ safety remains our priority.
“We will work with building owners and managers to ensure any necessary work is carried out.”
