Heritage buildings make an important contribution to the city’s character, but many require strengthening to make them safe in earthquakes.
The Council provides support to building owners by providing grants for earthquake strengthening and waivers on some resource consents. For the next three years, we are proposing to increase the total funding pool to $1 million a year, in order to increase the number of buildings that are being strengthened.
