The NSW government has com-menced a review into new regula-tions for the removal of loose-fill asbestos insulation from residen-tial properties. Under the proposed rules a register for properties that have been af-fected by loose-fill asbestos will be established. If the proposed changes are made planning certificates will have to state if a property is listed on the register.

 

Comments to the review closed on 15 April 2016. In the mean-time, the NSW Government has set up a Voluntary Purchase and Demolition program, to purchase properties affected by loose-fill asbestos.
