    There needs to be a full investigation and a public inquiry into how this situation was allowed to happen.

    Trevor, I agree. It smacks of the sort of subjective, untrammelled, uncontrolled officer policy-making, like the Council’s flogging of the waterfront to developers for a hundred dollars.

    What difference does it make now. The building burnt down, it did not fail due to any construction issue.

    Annabel, you are totally, 100% wrong. The building burnt down precisely because of issues around poor construction, bad design, lack of adequate or appropriate fire safety measures, and a general flouting of the Building Code – which applies to Marae as much as any other building. That’s why the Tapu Te Ranga Marae was declared a death trap by the Council many years ago. It really is a miracle that no one was killed.
