Dangerous building notice issued to property on cliff at Browns Bay Beach

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours. A dangerous building notice has been placed upon part of a home sitting atop an eroding cliff after further slips left parts teetering over the edge.

The notice, issued by Auckland Council, comes after a spate of slips sent boulders, fencing and a mature pōhutukawa tree tumbling down Dan Jones Bluff, on to Browns Bay Beach.

The Building Act 2004 considers a building dangerous if it may cause injury, death or damage to other property.

The most recent slip has left a footpath railing hanging off the cliff’s edge, and several trees only remain attached to the cliff by their roots.

The owners or occupiers of the property must "take action to reduce or remove the danger”, according to Auckland Council policy.

We Say, You Say: Auckland Uni Exams

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?
