Bill McKay from the Architecture faculty at the University of Auckland had a very thoughtful discussion on Radio NZ today, about the risk to heritage in the regions, following the legislation enacted after the Christchurch earthquakes.
He points out that many heritage buildings in the regions are either empty or have low value tenants. As a result of the new legislation there will be an increasing amount of demolition by neglect.
He has some good points to make about how this could be avoided.
