Council at fault for decreases in building values?

Extraordinary claim in The Dominion Post that Council is responsible for decreases in building values because we are labelling some buildings as earthquake prone. We not only have a moral obligation to assess our buildings, we are empowered to through the Building Act and the public expects us to act on that mandate.

Building owners are under pressure and we must help them but they also need to take responsibility for ensuring that their buildings are strong.
