Since 1824

17 Aug

With Bluff being the oldest continuously settled European town in NZ (there must be a shorter ‘claim to fame’ than that) we will be included in the assessments discussed at the Regulatory meeting yesterday.  All pre – 1976 non residential buildings need assessing.

“What if the owner gets told it will cost millions of dollars to get the building up to standard and thinks it is not worth the investment on the first floor shop and just walks?” he said.

“If the rates are not paid on the building, it goes back to the council and it has to pay for either the restoration or demolition of that building.”

Indeed……Houston Bluff Invercargill we have a problem.
