Further to the update provided in July 2018, as of 11 October 2018, the latest data from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) shows that 204 households from Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk require rehousing. Of this number, 39 households are in emergency accommodation (22 households are in hotels, 14 in serviced apartments and 3 with friends and family). 35 households are currently living in temporary accommodation, and 130 households have moved into a permanent home.

Council tenants from Barandon Walk, Testerton Walk, Hurstway Walk, Treadgold House and Bramley House who do not feel able to remain in their homes, are eligible to be rehoused under RBKC’s Wider Grenfell Rehousing Policy. As of 11 October, 5 of these households are in emergency accommodation (3 are in hotels, 2 are in serviced apartments) and 72 households are currently living in temporary accommodation, while they await permanent rehousing. 2 households have moved to new permanent accommodation. In order to prevent individual households being made identifiable, I am unable to provide a breakdown of the location of these households based on which part of the Estate they originally lived in.
