Developer ‘highly likely’ to replace wooden balconies after Barking Riverside fire


If the material complied with building regulations and the lease explicitly said that no BBQ’s were to be had on the balconies, then this is negligence by the resident. Having lived in an estate with balconies (shared emergency egress) residents frequently disregard rules on access, leaving items explicitly banned from being left out. A BBQ on a balcony is just ignorant of your fellow residents, not to mention dangerous.
