Petition to review the earthquake-prone provisions in the Building Act 2004

Calls for the Government to undertake a review of the earthquake-prone provisions to take account of the significantly higher strengthening costs compared to those used in the policy process, the stretched engineering and construction sectors, and the need to focus scarce resources on public safety priorities.

For more information and a link to the petition, see the second document below.
