Immediately “requisition” nearby properties to ensure Grenfell residents are housed.
This petition had 228 supporters
Kensington and Chelsea is one of the wealthiest areas in England, while some parts of it are ranked among the most deprived in the country. There are 1,399 empty properties in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea right now.
The Government should allow the temporary requisition of properties, close to Grenfell tower, to give the survivors IMMEDIATE accommodation. Permanent requisition should be an option, if the council fails to provide permanent accommodation to the surviving residents of Grenfell, in the local area.
If you agree, that in the current situation, it is immoral to have flats and houses in the surrounding area vacant, whilst survivors of this tragedy are sleeping in shelters, please sign the petition and demand that the Government implements this immediately.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected.
