Grenfell Tower memorial planned
Plans for the Grenfell Tower site to be turned into a memorial to those who lost their lives in last year’s fire seem certain as the council says it will put the community at the heart of decisions over its future and had no other plans for the site.
A council document released this week says: 'The common assumption is that the consultation will lead towards agreement on a fitting memorial to remember those who lost their lives; and a request for Transport for London (TfL) for the renaming of Latimer Road underground station to commemorate Grenfell Tower which will require TfL’s processes to be followed in reaching a decision.
“Kensington and Chelsea council, supported by the government, clearly state that they have no plans for the site and that the future of the site will be determined by the community.”
Shahin Sadafi, the chair of the survivors’ group Grenfell United, said the future of the site had been a major source of anxiety for the bereaved, survivors and local community.
