Criteria and Considerations - Why wasn’t the date of surrender one of the factors in the schedule? Why wasn’t First Right of Refusal (those seeking to return and rebuild) election the overriding priority for developing the schedule?

The schedule has been developed to safely, quickly, efficiently and effectively remove loose fill asbestos insulation from our community.

In preparing the indicative Demotion Schedule the Taskforce balanced all considerations to get the best outcome for the community and allowing the ACT to meet its requirements in repaying the loan for this Program to the Commonwealth Government.

To choose one variable or consideration over another would lead to inefficient demolition scheduling and the opportunity for houses to be demolished in a coordinated way.

The Taskforce acknowledges that homeowners may have mixed feelings about the update of the schedule and encourages owners to seek support or further information from the Personal Support Team on 13 22 81.
