Put the failing Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea put into special measures

This petition had 2,061 supporters

Theresa May get commisioners in to run the failing Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The council has proven over a considerable length of time that they are incompetent and cannot be trusted with governance of this borough. 

After Grenfell, their response was poor and the residents of this borough and North Kensington in particular require the  extra help to recover. Many Grenfell survivors are still living in hotels and some are still existing on charity donations - this is completely unacceptable.

Grenfell survivors, families and many from in and around North Kensington are deeply traumatised and many people will need help for years to come. This is an exceptional situation and requires outside help from the Government. 

Also it is inapproriate given the legal situation regarding Grenfell, that some of the same people in charge who made decisions over refurbishment of Grenfell Tower are still in charge.

There are also a significant number of questionable decisions and policies made by those in charge of this borough  over Wornington College, the Westway Trust, North Kensington Library, The Isaac Newton Centre, the Westway Information Centre, Earl's Court Masterplan, Thamesbrook and Marlborough School - that require further investigation. 

We ask  you to get the comissioners in and to see  what can be done to help before further harm is caused  to our communities.
