Working from a functionalist legal perspective, using the current New Zealand experience and a comparative examination of overseas practice, the project will provide guidance on the specific regulatory requirements for the resilience and recovery in Wellington’s CBD. Working with other partners in Flagship 3 and the wider Wellington Resilience project, this socio-legal study will help ensure that when it comes, Wellington can survive its inevitable time of challenge.
The overall aims of this three year project are to provide: 1. An understanding of risks and likely impact of the current regulatory environment for multi-storey buildings Wellington region. 2. Regulatory solutions for reducing the risk and likely impact of a major event in the Wellington region. 3. A regulatory framework for managing the loss of significant building stock in the post event environment.
At the annual meeting we will provide preliminary findings around stage one of the project relating to the following:
