Taking measures to keep the poorer members of the community safer in their homes

The Grenfell Tower fire was a tragedy, but it was avoidable. There seems to be no doubt that flammable plastic cladding allowed the fire to spread up the outside of the building. The public enquiry will reveal more, but that will take months. So we must do what we can now to make sure everyone living in rented accommodation in Hastings is not exposed to the same risks that led to such tragic consequences in Kensington.

When horror strikes, remember the helpers

It is difficult to take in the full horror of the tragedy which took place at Grenfell Tower last week. Every memory of survivors or emergency responders adds harrowing new details to this truly awful event. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost friends, loved ones and all they own.

Hoping austerity will be cut back

After the general election campaign, it’s time to settle back to being council leader. It was a close run contest, and I’d like to thank the 25,322 people who voted for me, and the 2,000+ who helped with the campaign, as well as congratulating Amber Rudd on her victory.
