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.
