Asbestos and building
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.
To find out more call 1800 104 076, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the Department of Housing and Community Development website.
