Why do I need to do this?
The ACT Government’s first advice remains that homeowners should leave Mr Fluffy properties and the voluntary Buyback Program supported this by allowing all properties to be purchased as at 28 October 2014. However it is recognised that some homeowners are seeking to remain in their houses in the medium term, including through the Buyback Program’s flexible settlement timelines which allow a latest settlement date of 30 June 2020.
The asbestos management plan will assist in minimising the potential for further exposure to loose fill asbestos for homeowners, tradespeople, service providers and visitors to Mr Fluffy houses. The plans are a medium term approach to allow people to reside in an affected property until it is demolished to remove the risk of exposure to the community.
