"For the first time, a council is going to court to get the power to strengthen two heritage listed, earthquake-prone buildings - because the owners refuse to do so.

"The Wellington City Council's strengthening deadlines for the Toomath's Building on Ghuznee Street, and the Adelaide Hotel on Adelaide Road both expired in 2013.

"Now the council says despite extensive efforts to work with the building owners, there has been no progress, and it has now lost confidence they will do the necessary work.

"The council's Chief Resilience Officer, Mike Mendonca speaks to Kim Hill.

“Allan Matson: fighting facadism” Sunday Morning RNZ National Podcast

Allan Matson is the Chair of the Auckland Civic Trust and sits on the HPA Executive.

Allan Matson: fighting facadism Sunday Morning RNZ National

"Facadism in Auckland is getting under the collar of heritage expert Allan Matson. It's an architectural practice that took off in the 1980s - gutting old buildings and retaining their facade. The art deco Jean Batten building in Shortland Street is one example. Matson is president of the Civic Trust which seeks to preserve heritage buildings and was an elected member of the NZ Historic Places Trust Board (now Heritage NZ) from 2009-2014 and a long-time critic of facadism."
