Last Week's Meeting - Friday 5th June

Title: Earthquake Prone Building Test Case
Speaker: Ian Harrison



Ian Harrison's talk covered a test case on whether the Wellington City Council's designations of 'Earthquake Prone' buildings are lawful.

A determination has been sought from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment seeking to overturn the Council's designation of two apartment buildings.

Ian explained how a recent Supreme Court decision had set a clear test for identifying earthquake prone buildings and why the 34% of the new Building Standard benchmark used by the Council is inconsistent with that new test.

Ian also talked about the new seismic strengthening polices announced by the Minister of Building and Housing, the Honourable Nick Smith.

Visitors: Ian Harrison, Caroll C., Dexter B., Linda R., Helen Y., Peter & Rosie N.
Friends of Rotary: Mary E., Norma P.
