Residents’ fire safety fears for station car park development


Residents opposed to the Snaresbrook Station car park development have renewed calls for planning permission to be denied, citing a report that claims the proposed flats fail to meet critical fire safety requirements.

The independent report by Apex Strategies concludes that emergency access is below London Fire Brigade minimum standards.

“We’re in favour of affordable housing, but this proposal creates unthinkable safety risks for potential residents and neighbours,” said Mike Calvert of the Real Snaresbrook campaign.
