Owners locked out of their homes in the failed Bella Vista development are being locked out of a Tauranga City Council meeting discussing their fate.

Property owners along Lakes Boulevard and Aneta Way were evacuated on March 9 in the wake of Cyclone Hola.

All but one of the 21 homes have been unable to be reoccupied after a raft of building and land stability issues were identified, despite some having code of compliance certificates.

Homeowners will only have 10 minutes each to plead their case to council on June 6 before the councillors close the meeting to the public and deliberate on what, if any, remediation will be made.
