Ratepayers pick up leaky home bill

Parker & Associates - Monday, March 03, 2014
Ratepayers are picking up a $1.9 million leaky home bill after a judgment ruled Wellington City Council failed to do its job properly.
Residents in a leaky Glenmore St townhouse development are relieved to have won a claim against the council for its handling of the building project by developer Bernard Brodie.
In a judgment issued last week, Justice Ronald Young said the council's attention to its statutory obligation was "hopelessly inadequate".
