City of Parramatta Council would like to correct a recent media report relating to the number of buildings identified as having combustible cladding in its Local Government Area (LGA).
In the City of Parramatta LGA, 171 buildings have been identified as having some of form cladding, however, it is still being determined what the nature of those materials are and if they pose any safety risk.
At this stage, six buildings have been found to contain combustible cladding and Council has issued orders to ensure the problems are rectified and the buildings meet the relevant safety requirements.
Council is still in the process of investigating and liaising with building stratas, and is prioritising residential buildings as part of this process.
City of Parramatta Council is committed to working with the relevant state agencies on this issue until all matters are resolved.
