    Councillor Nicola Young posted on the Save Our Library facebook site and talked of the most expensive $200million option for the library. Why? Is she supporting demolition?

    @ Mavis: on Newstalk ZB a couple of weeks ago Nicola Young said she supported building a new Library for $160 million, even though building experts have consistently said it would be more expensive to build a new Library (including the considerable costs of demolition) than to strengthen the existing one.

    With regard to the Carillon and the strengthening thereof: none of this makes any sense. How is it possible that it was strengthened, yet a detailed seismic assessment wasn’t done beforehand? How on earth would anyone know what strengthening was needed without a prior assessment?

    I know that DSAs were being carried out before 2014. Something about this suggests that we aren’t being told the full story.

    None of the earthquake strengthening anywhere seems to make sense.
    The Town Hall was strengthened in the early 1990’s and now it is being strengthened again – for how much and taking how long?

    The Navigator is one of NZ’s greatest films and many of its images recurred to me during lock down. Thanks for referencing it.
