City reminds Community of Renovation Needs
Australia has long been a renovation nation, however the popularity of renovating has reached frenzied proportions with the billions of dollars saved during the pandemic now being spent on renovating homes. With one-in-three homes containing asbestos and more than one-in-three homeowners currently undertaking renovations (an increase of 37% according to RateCity.com.au); serious concerns have been raised that DI renovators and tradies might be risking their lives and the lives of their families if they fail to respect the potentially life-threatening risks posed if asbestos is not managed safely. It’s also important to remember that renovations may require a planning or building permit and to contact the City to check before commencing works.
