Building with a 6 metre height to underside of roof for trucks and a lesser height in a separate area for cars. Cars and trucks drive in, have new tyres fitted, you know the drill. The truck bay is a bit like a VTNZ facility.
BCA (Hastings District Council) is stating that because the spaces are capable of storage over 3 metres the property rating needs to be increased, and a type 3 fire alarm system fitted.
Is this kosha?
I have argued that churches are capable of high storage as are some older office buildings, but this falls on deaf ears.
Has anyone experienced similar issues?
Interestingly Napier City Council do not adopt this approach - only 22km away.
