Whitefield Estate Fire Safety Information – removal of cladding

The safety and peace of mind of our residents are our top priority. Following recent extensive third party tests at Clare Point, Norden Point and Whychcote Point we will be removing the cladding from these blocks to ensure additional safety for our residents until the blocks are vacated in 2024. Works to remove the cladding will start week commencing 10 May through to the start of September 2021. Residents will be supported throughout this period by dedicated Barnet Homes officers.

A letter was delivered to all residents on Wednesday 28 April informing them of the upcoming works, please click here to read the full text of the letter.
