NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 21 April 2022, the department issued a Fire Safety Order to the owners of 7 Lardelli Drive, Ryde, to remove identified external wall panels on the building consisting of Biowood Cladding Panels (BCP). BCP is combustible and poses a fire safety risk. The owners are required to replace the BCP with a non-combustible product and provide an inspection report issued by an accredited certifier, certifying that the replacement panels and method of installation comply with the Building Code of Australia. The owners are required to develop and implement fire safety measures to reduce the fire safety risks associated with the cladding until the rectification work is complete.
