Council raises concerns about combustible cladding
Published on 02 August 2019
The City of Ryde has called on the NSW Government to publicly release the location of buildings that contain combustible aluminium cladding.
The NSW Government created the NSW Cladding Taskforce Register to identify buildings that contain the combustible aluminium cladding, but has not publicly revealed the locations of each building on the register.
At its ordinary meeting last week, Council noted its concern regarding the danger the combustible cladding posed to City of Ryde residents.
In calling for the location of the affected buildings to be released, Council also requested that the NSW Government release the strategies in place to deal with any potential fire hazards related to the combustible cladding.
Council sought leadership and financial assistance from the Federal Government as well to help deal with the issue.
The concerns and requests outlined in the Council resolution will be conveyed in writing to relevant Ministers and Shadow Ministers in both the Federal and NSW parliaments.
