I've spent a bit of time drawing old buildings lately, a natural reaction I think to the amount of seismic activity we've been experiencing here lately!
For our safety's sake the government want to introduce a 15 year time limit for earthquake strengthening. Sadly many won't have the resources to carry out the millions of dollars of work on their buildings so they will probably end up being demolished. I'm not so sure, essentially it means that if the earthquakes don't get rid of our built heritage, the government certainly will!
