The BCCG National President has prepared a letter to members to draw attention to four matters of particular concern to all members.  

The four matters are:

  • The third tranche of sections of the UTA Amendment Act 2022 and associated regulations which will come into force on the 9th of May 2024
  • An opinion from Pidgeon Judd Law on the new LTMP provisions
  • An important meeting in Auckland about Inner City Security and Safety which may have repercussions for other cities.
  • A round table meeting held to consider a rebuttal to the ‘A Living Hell – Apartment Disasters’ mini-series that was run in February/March this year.

The incident recently reported by the New Zealand Heraldwhere an e-scooter being charged in the Wellington apartment building of a member body corporate, burst into flames has caused BCCG to give some thought and consideration to this issue.  

The problem appears to be quite universal, there was a recent article on the Sydney News about a similar problem in a New York apartment building where an e-bike burst into flames while it was being charged and on 15 August, TVNZ’s Seven Sharp programme featured a controlled house fire to show the dangers of incorrectly charging lithium-ion battery products.

As the various sections of the Unit Titles Amendment Act 2022 progressively come into force there are a number of changes to responsibilities and obligations that members need to be aware of.  

Eight interviews covering the new requirements for Chairs and Committees have been recorded and uploaded to the BCCG website. 

We hope the podcasts will help to improve members’ understanding of, and compliance with, the new requirements.
