Remaining Affected Properties – Supporting Pathways to Eradication
The owners of a vast majority of loose fill asbestos affected properties have finalised alternative living arrangements and moved to safer accommodation, allowing the demolition of their former Mr Fluffy property.
This has been achieved using different pathways; both through the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme (Scheme) and privately.
The Taskforce acknowledges that each person and family’s circumstances are different, and that there may be challenges to progressing along a pathway that will result in a life beyond Mr Fluffy.
Although participation in the Scheme remains available to eligible owners of the remaining properties, private demolition may be the best pathway for some and the ACT Government is supportive of this option.
The experiences of some former homeowners may help others identify possible pathways to achieve an outcome that suits their particular circumstances.
There are a range of activities designed to assist remaining homeowners as they explore pathways suited to their individual circumstances.
Facilitated Group Information Session
Hear about the pathways followed by some former homeowners; have the opportunity to discuss options that may be suitable - both within the Scheme and privately; and talk about any barriers to moving forward.
Light refreshments will be provided at this event.
Date: Wednesday 27 March 2019
Time: 11:00am to 2:00pm

Collaborative Community and Industry Information Event
A self-serve event hosted by a member of the community, where community organisations and industry personnel will be on-hand to share their expertise to assist you on whatever pathway you may wish to take. An RSVP is not required as this is a 'drop-in' type event.

Time: 2:30pm to 4:30pm
Venue: Council on the Ageing (COTA) ACT Hall, Hughes Shopping Centre, 2 Wisdom Street, Hughes
More information will be provided on the Taskforce website closer to this event.
An Individual Meeting with the Taskforce Executive can also be arranged to better understand your particular circumstances, to discuss options and what the next steps may be. An appropriate community member or industry personnel could also attend to provide information about options suitable to your circumstances and the Taskforce can make those connections, if desired.
