Removal of asbestos roofing
The removal of asbestos roofing at Council’s Rosebank Office begins on Monday (March 1).
Clutha District Council Chief Executive Steve Hill assured the public that they would still be safe to visit the Rosebank Office as contractors would be removing the asbestos roofing and confining it to contained areas.
“All removed asbestos will be double-wrapped onto pallets up on the scaffold landing docks. It will be out of reach and then transported off site.” Mr Hill said.
He said once an area of tiles had been removed the specialist contractor would come in and check the air was clean – ‘air monitoring’.
While the asbestos removal work is underway those visiting by vehicle can still drive into the back car park and walk in the back door entrance.
However if you are visiting the Rosebank Office as a pedestrian, access will be via Harvey Terrace.
Access to the main desk is sign posted however we do encourage residents and ratepayers to visit the i-SITE instead, if they have an account to pay.
“We want to thank the public for their cooperation and understanding,” Mr Hill said.
A reminder to people to ring ahead to arrange an appointment with a Building Control Officer or the Planning Control Team.
Pre-lodgement for building consent applications will not be available in person during the building works. Consents can be placed in a box at our main counter for the Regulatory Team to assess.
Mr Hill reminded people that if they needed to pay their rates, dog registrations or other payments, they could also visit the i-SITE at 1 John Street, Balclutha or one of our Service Centres, in Milton, Lawrence, Tapanui, or Owaka.
