Description

Shipping containers are often seen on properties around Aotearoa New Zealand, but in a major flood, they can float and become dangerous. It’s time to consider the legislation regarding their use.

The terrible February storm that wreaked havoc across the east coast of the North Island was one of the worst in living memory. The damage to public and private property, not to mention the harm and suffering to the people living in these areas, was unprecedented.
