The matter for determination is whether proposed soil stabilisation measures were adequate to ensure that the loads likely to be experienced by a proposed retaining wall did not exceed those that the wall was capable of withstanding. In effect whether, as required by clause B1.3.1, B1.3.6, and B1.3.7 of the New Zealand Building Code, the proposed soil stabilisation measures are sufficient to ensure that the retaining wall concerned will have a low probability of becoming unstable or collapsing.
