Some parts of this release would not be appropriate to release and, if requested, would be withheld under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act). Where this is the case, the relevant sections of the Act that would apply have been identified. Where information has been withheld, no public interest has been identified that would outweigh the reasons for withholding it.
Please note that the implementation of the decisions outlined in the Cabinet paper ‘Mixed-use buildings under the Earthquake Commission Act 1993’ has been delayed due to Covid-19 priorities. The amendments are now being progressed as part of a broader work programme to modernise the Earthquake Commission Act 1993, which is being undertaken by the Treasury.
