The matter before the Authority was whether a lift suitable for use by people with disabilities should be installed in the alteration of a local government administration building in order to comply with section 38 of the Building Act.
That section provides in effect that after an alteration the building concerned is to comply with certain provisions of the building code (the First Schedule to the Building Regulations 1992), including the provisions for access and facilities for use by people with disabilities, 'as nearly as is reasonably practicable, to the same extent as if it were a new building'.
