2015/082: Regarding the authority's exercise of powers in issuing an earthquake-prone building notice for a multi-storey unreinforced masonry building
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to issue an earthquake-prone building notice under section 124(1)(c) of the Act as the authority considered the building to be earthquake prone as defined in section 122 of the Act.
The applicant considers the authority's earthquake-prone building policy is not consistent with section 122 of the Act and that it did not correctly apply its policy in the case of this building.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority exercised its powers correctly in issuing the section 124 notice for the building, and the discussion of this matter and conclusions are set out in sections 10 and 13 of the determination.
