Thank you all for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service released their initial investigations and based on the evidence at hand, they found that the fire was accidental and likely to have broken out on a third floor roof terrace before travelling up the wall into the roof space.
We welcome these findings and await the ongoing investigation into why it spread, which is likely to take several months to complete.
As always, our residents are a top priority and we have now placed our signs outside the Beechmere site, as we are still here for you. We continue to work with the remaining residents who still require a permanent home. Around two-thirds of our residents have now been found alternative permanent homes to date.
The intention is to rebuild the Beechmere complex and Avantage are currently working with the council and partner organisations on progressing this. We will update you as soon as we know more about the demolition and re-build operations.
