Earthquake Prone, Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings

Every council is required to manage earthquake prone, dangerous and insanitary buildings (Building Act Section 124). Some Wellington City data has already been released, and Auckland City will likely released a similar dataset in near future.

Making the public more aware of dangerous, earthquake prone and insanitary buildings in their community.

Making the data available so it could be made available and easily searched or mapped. This is also likely to encourage building owners to more quickly rectify identified problems with their building. The Department of Building and Housing is perhaps the key Govt agency to aggregate this information from councils and publish a national dataset.
