Dundee multi-storeys set for £4.2m fire safety improvements


COUNCIL multi-storey dwellings across Dundee could be set for £4.2 million worth of fire safety improvements.

It comes as Dundee City Council looks to further enhance safety standards in the blocks. Councillors will meet on April 26 to approve the proposals, with the local authority anticipating the works to be completed by December 2022.

Neighbourhood services convener at Dundee City Council, councillor Anne Rendall, said, “We continue to prioritise our tenants’ safety as we maintain the highest standards in our housing.

“These latest fire safety improvement works are part of a comprehensive plan to continue that. The acquisition of new high-quality fire doors for flats and communal areas will help to minimise the risk and spread of fire in properties.

“Our continued work with the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service has allowed us to carry out additional safety checks to our high-rise properties ensuring effective housekeeping and tenant safety. Home fire safety visits and detailed safety information has been provided in order to inform and reassure our multi-storey tenants.”
