Statement on NSW Government’s fire safety reforms

The Property Council of Australia stands ready to work with the NSW Government on their 10-point plan on fire safety reform.

“While our fire safety standards are higher in Australia, no one wants to see a Grenfell occur here,” Property Council NSW Executive Director Jane Fitzgerald said today.

“If there are lessons to learn, we should learn them.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of the community and ensuring that the apartments and people’s homes meet current fire safety regulations.

“Where sensible improvements can be made to improve the flow and availability of information on compliance with building codes, we will support them.”
