About 50 strata communities across NSW have registered for the state government’s program to remove combustible cladding from residential apartment buildings.

The three-year program provides a 10-year interest-free loan, and professional project management services to oversee the remediation works.

Minister for Better Regulation Kevin Anderson says all 214 eligible buildings should take advantage of the scheme.

“It’s great to see so many lot owners, strata communities and managers have already taken up the offer to be involved in our program, and I’d like to see that number quadruple in the coming weeks,” Mr Anderson said.

“We’re on track to commence assessment and project design for the first batch of 30 buildings by July this year, with the first cladding removed later this year.”

The government says strata communities who register to participate in the $139 million program will have their building assessed and a remediation design prepared before they decide whether to commit to the work.

“I encourage all those who are eligible to act now and register,” Mr Anderson said.

“Registering will start the process to have your building assessed and a design prepared – there is no obligation or commitment involved by registering.”
