Balgowlah Heights Profile

Balgowlah Heights, a suburb located in northern Sydney, has a rich history that is unfortunately tainted by the widespread use of asbestos in its buildings and infrastructure. Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral, was commonly used in the construction industry throughout the 20th century due to its heat-resistant properties and durability. In Balgowlah Heights, it was extensively used in the construction of residential homes, particularly those built in the post-war period up to the 1980s. The suburb is known for its mix of Federation-style and Californian bungalow homes, many of which were built using asbestos-containing materials. Notable landmarks such as the Balgowlah Heights Public School and the Balgowlah Heights Bowling Club were also constructed during this period, and are therefore likely to contain asbestos. The use of asbestos was so prevalent that even the suburb’s infrastructure, including water and sewage pipes, were made from asbestos cement.

Today, the presence of asbestos in Balgowlah Heights poses significant health risks to its residents and workers. Asbestos fibres, when disturbed and inhaled, can cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. The Balgowlah Heights Public School, for instance, has been the subject of concern due to reports of asbestos contamination. In response to these challenges, local authorities have implemented stringent measures for asbestos management and removal. Contractors licensed by the NSW Government are employed to safely remove and dispose of asbestos-containing materials, and regular inspections are conducted to ensure compliance with safety standards. Despite these efforts, there have been incidents of asbestos-related health issues in the suburb. In 2018, a local resident was diagnosed with mesothelioma, believed to have been caused by exposure to asbestos during home renovations. This incident underscores the ongoing threat posed by asbestos in Balgowlah Heights, and the critical importance of continued vigilance and safety measures.
