1:17 Sustainable building certification won't be in Auckland LIM reports

Auckland Council has back tracked on including sustainable building certification on its Land Information Memoranda or LIM reports.

Earlier this year they gave an undertaking to have a home-fit check on them, but say the difficult decision has been made withdraw those plans citing concerns around the use of third party data as well as financial challenges.

To tell us more about what the Home-Fit report is and how it works, Jesse speaks to the Green Building Council chief executive, Andrew Eagles.

Golden Bay residents are pushing for tighter controls on the marine farming industry which is rapidly taking off in the area.

Six locals have formed a group called the Marine Farming Impact Group, to raise awareness of the problems that marine farming is creating as well as encouraging the industry to carry out their work responsibly for both residents and the environment.

Rod Barker from the group tells Jesse why they are so concerned.
