PHOTO: CHRISTCHURCH CITY COUNCIL – Christchurch City Council corporate services general manager Anne Columbus said all units deemed unable to be insulated will be re-assessed to see what other improvements can be made.
The Christchurch City Council (CCC) has less than a year to assess and potentially insulate 725 social housing properties.
If it fails to reach a July 1, 2019 deadline it could face fines of up to $4000 per property.
The council has assessed 1675 of its 2400 units and would have to check and potentially remedy about 3.5 every working day until next July to meet the standard. So far, about half of the properties assessed have required insulation work.
In 2015 the council said 1045 units were already sufficiently insulated.
