      it isnt law yet and the devil is in detail Wait to see the exceptions first??

      also this is a building act exemption you still have to comply with RMA and the district plan that applies so dont think the council are going away?
      Yes you are right as well. The problems don't really lie with the building consents for these things, it's the resource consent that takes all the time, costs all the money and contains all the fishhook conditions.

        He called them shipping containers; the council called them a building

        A North Canterbury council has come unstuck in its efforts to get a 'building' of shipping containers moved from a local property.

        The property owner said that the council was trying to enforce "stupid" rules and lacked common sense. "They told me they were the rules and they had to follow them, but then said I could get the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment to overrule them."

        MBIE determined that the placement of the containers on the applicant's site does not constitute building work and no building consent was required.

        • Resource consent will be the next issue, building consent is only part of the battle.

            Christchurch councillors in hot water over vigilante action
            6 Aug 2020

            Two Christchurch city councillors are in trouble after taking vigilante action to sort a flooding problem left unresolved for almost 10 years. Residents have long complained about the flooding on Pages Rd in the city's east, which covers the footpath and forces pedestrians onto a busy road for weeks after it rains.

            Fed up at the lack of action by the Christchurch City Council, Councillor Phil Mauger commandeered a digger from his company, Maugers Contracting, and had a 70-metre-long trench dug on red zone land, fixing the flooding overnight. But two days later, the council brought in its own digger and plugged both ends of the trench to stop it working, allowing the flooding to return.
            Is there anything to be said?
