The Dangerous, Insanitary and Earthquake Prone Buildings Policy was introduced to comply with requirements of the Building Act 2004.

The main principles in the first section are concerned with ensuring the safety, health and well being of people living and working in buildings.

The earthquake prone section of the policy takes into consideration whether the community wishes buildings to be strengthened to the greatest extent possible or whether the local circumstances warrant such an approach.

The policy includes Council's role in assessing and recording the status of buildings and to keep a balance between the risk posed by buildings and other priorities.

The policy also includes other structures such as heritage buildings, bridges and dams.
