NSW Implements Heftier Safe Regulations After Grenfell Tower Fire

The NSW Government is said to be considering stricter regulation on use of combustible cladding after the London Grenfell Tower fire that resulted in 80 deaths.

According to Premier Gladys Berejiklian, NSW’s building safety measures will be re-examined after reports that cheap cladding outside the London tower caused the fire to quickly spread. This has been an issue of concern here in Australia for a while with incidents like the Lacrosse fire highlighting the risks of combustible cladding on buildings.

The state government said up to 2,500 buildings in NSW could be fitted with flammable cladding.

 

The state government said a high-rise safety taskforce will be set up to identify any buildings that are at risk.
