Handing in the petition on 22 August (left to right): Dave Lewis, of Sceaux Gardens TRA and a witness of the Lakanal House fire; Sian Berry, Green London Assembly Member; John Tyson (Southwark Green Party), who started the petition.
After the Grenfell fire, Green activist John Tyson started a petition aimed at getting the Department for Communities and Local Government to implement the findings from the Lakanal fire inquest.
Recommendations from the report include:
- use of fire resistant materials
- regular fire assessments
- providing residents with full instructions about what to do in the event of a fire.
The petition has received over 104,000 signatures, from people up and down the UK.
On 22 August, John delivered the petition to the Department for Communities and Local Government, with the support of Green London Assembly member Sian Berry. You can still sign it to keep up the pressure.
