Labour's Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Plan - issues of detail regarding insurance problems

Thursday, 22 September 2011 6:00 a.m. by avonsidechch Popular

Labour's Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Plan, like all policy documents, has the big picture but no detail.

Of particular concern is the absence of timing for each of the proposals. When will a specific policy be initiated? What priority will it be given in the whole raft of post-election policies the incoming government would bring with it?

Some proposals are more time sensitive than others and, despite the good intentions, there is a risk that wi ...

The repair job today was sorting out the shower water temperature in an uninsured home in Kipling St Addington. The hot water cylinder fell over during the February quake, was put back but the water temperatures have never been the same.

The suspect was that the shower mixer needed a tweak. All good so far - but removing the shower mixer face plate showed no sign of a mixing unit. Unless its been very well hidden.
