"It was significant enough for a dangerous building notice" - Council on evacuating flats

Residents of a 16-floor apartment building in central Auckland, have been ordered to evacuate.

Auckland Council issued City Gardens Apartments a dangerous building notice, citing fire safety concerns.

City Garden must carry out repairs to meet standards - and if work's still incomplete people will have to move out on Monday.

One resident says the building's always had issues - and during one fire drill the fire escape was even locked.

Auckland Council Building Control General Manager Ian McCormick told Heather du Plessis-Allan it was a significant enough issue to take action.
