Proposed Dangerous, Insanitary and Affected Building Policy

We want to hear your views on the proposed dangerous, insanitary and affected building policy. 

The Building Act 2004 (‘the Act’) provides territorial authorities with a number of powers to act when a building is identified as dangerous, insanitary or affected.

The Act requires territorial authorities to have a policy on their approach to using these powers and their priorities for action. The Act also requires the policy to cover how these apply to Heritage buildings.
