NSW Fair Trading is responsible for the Loose-fill Asbestos Implementation Taskforce which is managing the demolition, site remediation and disposal of properties containing loose-fill asbestos insulation. Communication Link provided important community consultation support during 2016 as the new program was being rolled out. This included facilitating six community meetings across regional NSW, involving more than 300 residents. While tensions at these meetings may have on occasion been very high, engagement between the community and NSW Government representatives was respectful and constructive.
