Mr Fluffy Financial Assistance

The Asbestos Response Taskforce was established in July 2014 to provide a coordinated and compassionate response to the lasting impacts of loose-fill asbestos in Canberra homes. There are 1021 affected residential properties in the established suburbs of Canberra with homeowners opting into the Buyback and Demolition Scheme.

Icon Water are pleased to be able to assist in supporting those impacted families of Mr Fluffy homes through this difficult time. We will work with the affected community, and the Taskforce to waive charges associated with water and sewerage, and will seek to fast-track any planning approval processes where we have a role to play.

For questions regarding Icon Water's financial assistance package please call 6248 3223.
