Councillor Elizabeth Campbell, leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, said: "We have listened to communities and to the residents of North Kensington, and it is clear that public trust has been broken and there is no future role for the KCTMO. We are determined to act properly, thoroughly and fairly to restore trust in the council over time.
"I spoke to the prime minister, and the council is looking at all options for managing our own housing in the future. This will obviously include options for alternative management other than the KCTMO. We will, of course, consult with residents first and look for a swift but carefully managed transition."
Prime Minister Theresa May said her "priority remained giving individuals and families affected by the fire the support they need to rebuild their lives and look to the future with confidence".
