Posted 10 April 2019 by System Administrator (Georges River News)

Georges River Council would like to inform the public on actions being taken at Croot Park, Hurstville, following the discovery of fragments of bonded asbestos. Council has obtained independent scientific advice, which has confirmed that there is currently no significant risk of harm to human health or the environment. Temporary fencing has been erected to prevent access to the park while material is removed and the site is remediated. Council takes the matter of asbestos very seriously and will continue to work to ensure the material does not pose any risk to the community. Council appreciates the communityandrsquo;s cooperation during this time and asks that residents refrain from accessing the site while the temporary fence remains in place.
