CHALCOTS ESTATE

Twelve months ago, it would have been difficult to predict that the Chalcots tower blocks in Camden would become one of the key issues in next week’s local government elections.

The government’s communities secretary has condemned Camden Council’s handling of the Chalcots Estate evacuation, and said the council needed to be clearer about the government support they want.

Ever since the evacuation of the Chalcots towers, I have been running around with my fellow Belsize councillors trying to fix problems and help people that have fallen through the cracks at Camden Council.

On Monday morning the Labour-run council unveiled its (latest) plan for the Chalcots – to replace all the windows on the estate at a cost of more than £30 million, bringing the total cost of the project to £80m.

Every window on all five tower blocks on the Chalcots Estate in Camden needs to be replaced as part of urgent safety works.

The emergency evacuation of the Chalcots Estate and subsequent repairs have cost taxpayers £31million, it has been revealed.
