The Victorian Government plans to establish a taskforce of experts to investigate the extent of non-compliant cladding on buildings in the state.

The recent Grenfell Tower Fire in London has highlighted the issue of non-compliant cladding contributing to the rapid spread of fires,  described by state government as  a “critical public safety issue”.

The Taskforce’s co-chair, former Premier and architect Ted Baillieu said agencies, stakeholders and all citizens need to work together to ensure cladding is compliant with the country’s strict regulations and buildings are safe.

One of the aims of the taskforce will be to ensure resident, owners’ corporations and building managers are educated on the issue.
