Sprinklers in Wandsworth Council Tower Blocks
Wandsworth Council wants to install sprinklers in all tower blocks of 10 or more storeys.
Before the Council begins, it is asking the First Tier Tribunal (FTT) who should pay for this in the case of Leasehold properties - the council or Leaseholders.
Because the Conservative government won’t foot the bill, each Leaseholder could be presented with a bill in the region of £3,000 to £4,000
We support the installation of sprinklers for residents who want them, but we don’t think it’s fair that Leasehold residents will be forced to pay without the Council properly consulting you.
We are calling on Wandsworth Council to conduct a meaningful consultation process so residents can make their own decision on a block by block basis about whether they want sprinklers.
