We have a number of policies, many of which we have to develop because it’s required by law. Some we have chosen to develop because we think it’s important to be clear on where we stand on that particular issue.
The national earthquake-prone building system was put in place to ensure earthquake-prone buildings are managed consistently across the country. It also provides more information for people using buildings, such as notices on earthquake-prone buildings and a public register. You can search the register and read about managing earthquake-prone buildings at the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment’s Building Performance website.
As part of the national system we classified some of the streets and footpaths in our district as ‘busy thoroughfares’. What this means and the implications for earthquake-prone buildings in our district can be found on our page about The National Earthquake-prone Buildings System.
