Yesterday’s VCAT decision to award $5.2 million to the Lacrosse tower apartment owners has taken over 4 years to be resolved, and a further damages action still remains unresolved.
Planning Minister Richard Wynne must immediately work with industry to speed up the process of removing the dangerous, flammable cladding on Victorian apartment buildings.
The government must stop pointing fingers and take immediate action to ensure that flammable cladding is removed from Victorian buildings.
If the government does not intervene, residents in these death traps could be waiting decades for their homes to be made safe.
This is not a simple issue of who pays; lives are being placed at risk by residents remaining in these buildings with dangerous flammable cladding.
