Power Failure at New Mill Quarter in Hackbridge

Published Tuesday, 19th January 2021

Following a further power outage earlier today at New Mill Quarter in Hackbridge, the Council has requested an urgent meeting with the site developer, Barratts.

The London Fire Brigade were called out this morning due to vapour emissions from the Block P electricity substation. A mechanical failure caused heat supplies to fail. 

Power was restored to homes in the morning, but any resident still experiencing issues with their heat supply should please contact SDEN.

Council leaders will be demanding action on the ongoing problems being experienced by residents at New Mill Quarter due to works by Barratts, and stressing that the situation is unacceptable to the Council.
