In 2012, Hanover Tower was fitted with cladding as part of the “Decent Homes” scheme. Following the Grenfell fire, the cladding was tested and failed to meet Building Regulations standards. The council promised an investigation. At a meeting on 29th June 2017, residents were told, “The panels are different to the sample the Tenants and Residents Association hold. That’s what we need to investigate. We need to look at every stage of the sign off process for the works. Once we have the information we will take action against the contractor or SCC staff.”
Over three years later, on Friday 11th September 2020, the council gave its investigation report to residents and ward councillors.
This is Sheffield Greens’ reading of what we now know.
