Agreement to cover cost of fixing flammable cladding at 1000-home Greenwich development

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.

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.




Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
