Building and Construction

Stronger building regulation
Stronger building regulation is a key advocacy priority for LGNSW.

Local government wants to see a system which ensures that all parties are responsible and accountable for their actions, and the community and public interest is at the forefront. 

LGNSW supports the NSW Building Commissioner’s reform program and is working closely with the Commissioner to ensure the views of local government are considered as reforms are progressed.

Combustible cladding
LGNSW and councils have consistently advocated for a clear, consistent, state-wide response to managing this issue, along with support and funding to deal with cladding and the release of details surrounding identified high-risk buildings. LGNSW has provided a coordinating role, sharing information and facilitating briefings with the NSW Government’s Cladding Taskforce and councils.

LGNSW welcomed the NSW Government's establishment of Project Remediate in 2020. Project Remediate is a three-year program to help remove combustible cladding on an estimated 225 buildings.
