Amendment to existing Earthquake-Prone, Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings PolicyIssued 12 December 2018Submissions close 5pm Monday 21 January 2019
The Grey District Council adopted an Earthquake-Prone, Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy on 14 February 2011 and amended it on 13 May 2013.
In 2017, there was a change in legislation and subpart 6A and section 133AA were added to the Building Act, which include special provisions for earthquake-prone buildings. As a result, the Grey District Council have amended their policy to take this change into account.
The proposed amendments to the policy are a direct result of changes in legislation and are as follows:
There is only one practicable option, which is to update the policy and remove reference to earthquake-prone buildings as this is now outdated due to the change in legislation. A policy is still required to deal with dangerous, affected and insanitary buildings.
OPTION ONE: ADOPT THE AMENDED POLICY
As with the current policy, the amended policy will continue to be enforced by the Compliance and Building teams of Council.
