If you live in public housing that was built before 1983 it will need to be checked for asbestos.
What you need to do
You do not need to contact anyone. A letter will be sent out to public housing tenants from 1 May.
You will be contacted by a housing officer or contractor to arrange a time for an inspection.
If your home has asbestos
If asbestos is found in your home, a licensed inspector will tell the department what needs to be done.
