Asbestos Response Taskforce
|Timeframe||2015 - 2017|
|Role||Project and Program Manager|
The Asbestos Response Taskforce was established by the ACT Government in June 2014 to provide a coordinated response to Canberrans whose properties were identified as containing loose fill asbestos. The largest installer of this product was a company known as 'Mr Fluffy' which was responsible for the installation of loose fill asbestos in over 1,000 properties from the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s.
The Taskforce was responsible for coordinating the purchase of affected properties, removing the asbestos (by complete demolition) and selling the remediated sites through a coordinated property sales program. This entailed extensive and effective communication with all stakeholders and the public.
