    And so, therefore, did the council numpties.
    .......................

    Seems that moveability is the critical factor.
    if it is a vehicle (and a caravan is a vehicle) then it is not a building unless immoveable AND permanently occupied.... moveability is a indication of not immovable.

    Immovability and what it is is still a live issue? (as is permanently occupied)but if moeaveble it isnt a building.

    in terms of this thread this is a victory against bureaucratic power that seeks to intrude beyond its power.

    this is a battlle won in a big war but a win for the little guy against the full resources of the council and govt!!!!!

    But wait! To fix the problem, Taxcindy Tooth Fairy et al will re-write the RMA, being the problem in the first place. And of course, they will make it worse!

    councils blimming allow high rises by the airport yet the place I am looking is atleast 15-20 Km's away.

    "The property is also subject to an overlay in the Auckland Unitary Plan defined as Infrastructure:
    Aircraft Noise Overlay - Moderate aircraft noise area (MANA), Auckland Airport - moderate aircraft noise area.


    "That overlay restricts development to a density not exceeding 1 dwelling per 400m2 site area. Which means the property cannot be developed with a second dwelling of any size. There is no basis for which resource consent could be recommended for approval for proposed development exceeding that density"

    605m2 section house needs a good reno, (not for faint hearted), cant do much to add value - cant have more than 2 groups of occupants, such as demolish and build duplexes or even extend and have two groups like upstairs or downstairs.

    What a farce !

    The only common denominator with councils and common sense is the letter "C."

    Are you suggesting that the rule is wrong in this case or just putting the boot in?

    How would you explain the-not-obvious-to-bureacrats-notion (that needed to be pointed out by a judge) that if it's on wheels and it's movable, it's not a building?

    I would say councils will get this loophole closed pretty quick.

    They likes their development contributions, reserve contributions, resource consent fees, building consent fees, infrastructure growth fees and so on.

    The also like being in control.
    Squadly dinky do!
