Building—combustible cladding(Question No 374)

Ms Lee asked the Minister for Sustainable Building and Construction, upon notice, on 6 August 2021:

(1) How many privately-owned buildings has the Government identified with the presence of combustible cladding.

(2) Has the Government completed modelling and/or projections in relation to the anticipated uptake of its voluntary cladding rectification program for privately-owned buildings; if so, what is the anticipated amount of voluntary self-identification of combustible cladding; if not, based on what advice has the Government received to budget for the scheme.

(3) Can the Minister provide a list of the relevant stakeholders, individual, peak body, and corporate, that the Government has engaged with in relation to the establishment of the private buildings cladding scheme.

(4) What policy advice did the Government receive in relation to the establishment of a voluntary scheme for privately owned buildings, rather than the adoption of the same audit it used for ACT Government-owned buildings.

(5) Given that the ACT Government issues certificates of occupancy for privately-owned buildings, has the government received policy advice regarding its potential liability for the cost of (a) remediation works for buildings identified with combustible cladding, (b) remediation for buildings that have not reported the presence of combustible cladding, but experience combustion as a result of unidentified cladding and/or (c) relocating tenants/owners deemed to be occupying privately-owned buildings impacted by combustible cladding; if so, can the minister provide a copy of that advice.
