After months of arguing the National House-Building Council have agreed to foot the bill for replacing flammable cladding at New Capital Quay in Greenwich.
Fantastic news for all residents of New Capital Quay in West Greenwich. Having concluded their investigation, the NHBC have today accepted the claim and will now cover the costs of removing and replacing all the dangerous cladding and insulation across the site.

The Galliard development went up around five years ago and includes nearly 1000 homes and a Waitrose amongst many riverside commercial units (many of which are still empty).
This is welcome news to those stuck in limbo and who have fought for the developer or insurers to foot the bill.
Another large development with the most dangerous type of cladding is located nearby at Greenwich Square, which includes Greenwich library and leisure centre.
24 hour fire marshalls are still on site as arguments continue on who pays.
