Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google

Victoria will introduce a levy next month to help pay for the cladding remediation works of affected high-rise buildings.

The state announced in July a $600 million program to remove the dangerous materials from private residential complexes.

The levy will be imposed on building permits for non-regional construction works of $800,000 or more.

The Victorian Building Authority will collect the levy for the Government.
