Bayside Council has issued 21 fire-safety notices for combustible cladding on buildings for either removal or modification.

To date, the council has identified 74 buildings as needing to be investigated for potential combustible cladding. Of these 56 have been declared safe following investigations.

Last August, the NSW Cladding Register listed 71 buildings that have been identified as containing cladding within the Bayside Council local government area.

The buildings identified with combustible cladding included office buildings, mixed retail and residential buildings and residential flat buildings.

The majority of these buildings were confirmed as containing non-combustible cladding or cladding with a fire retardant core," a council spokesperson said at the time.

Recent figures show that the owners of 130 buildings in the City of Sydney have been told to replace flammable lading with some apartment owners facing bills of up to $25,000.

Willoughby Council has issued 66 fire-safety notices, Canada Bay Council has issued 33 fire-safety notices, North Sydney 27, Liverpool 22, Blacktown 10 and Parramatta 6.
