Hastings District Designation Areas for Emergency Management of Buildings
Hastings District Designation Areas for Emergency Management of Buildings Public notice 19 May 2023 Since the weather event in February 2023, affected buildings in the Hastings District have been managed under sub part 6B of the Building Act 2004. The Act requires that this designation is reviewed every 90 days and consideration be given to (amongst other things): (2) A person making a designation decision must, to the extent that is practicable in the circumstances, have regard to the following matters: (a) the scale and degree of the impact of the emergency and of its effects on buildings in the relevant area: (b) the likelihood of a further emergency or any other relevant event occurring that could cause— (i) buildings in the relevant area to pose increased or additional risks; or (ii) land in the relevant area to pose a risk to a building: (c) the principle that it is preferable that risks be managed, if possible, without the exercise or continued exercise of powers under this subpart.
Through this review, Hastings District Council in its statutory role, has made the decision to continue the designation across the entire Hastings District. This will be reviewed in a further 90 days.
