Tauranga City Council has filed charges against parties involved in the Bella Vista development at The Lakes.
In a statement released this morning, council says it has filed charges in the district court.
"The charges relate to non-compliance with the Building Act and were served on the parties today.
"The council will not be commenting on the prosecution while it is before the Court."
Twenty one houses in the Tauranga development were deemed to be dangerous and were evacuated in March.
Since then it's been revealed the houses, some which had code compliance certificates, were shoddy and unsafe.
