21 September 2019 – Update on the fire at Worcester Park

Since the fire at Worcester Park in the early hours of 9 September, we have been working on site with the original developers Berkeley Group and St James, London Borough of Sutton, and the London Fire Brigade to provide assistance to the emergency services and to all affected residents. Responsibility for the Richmond House site has now been passed back to us by the Police & London Fire Brigade, as their examinations have now concluded. The site remains closed-off for safety. Security is in place & the police continue reassurance patrols on the Hamptons.

Our primary concern continues to be to ensure that affected residents have the support they need over the days and weeks ahead. Since the fire, we have ensured that all residents whose homes have been damaged in the fire have a place to stay, at no extra cost to them.

Each household has been offered a dedicated housing case worker to provide individual support during this difficult time. Residents are also receiving support from the British Red Cross, London Borough of Sutton, and local volunteers.

We are working to  secure more suitable accommodation for those displaced by the fire.

Hearing the concerns of our residents, we have also enhanced our fire safety procedures across The Hamptons whilst the cause of the fire is being investigated by the London Fire Brigade.
