The matter for determination is whether the territorial authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a new house because it was not satisfied that the cedar cladding installed to part of the house complies with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code2, considering the colour of the coating applied to the cladding. As the applicant has restricted the matter to be determined to the colour of the cedar cladding, and the territorial authority has raised no other issues regarding the building, this determination is limited to the durability of the cedar cladding. The matter for determination is whether the cedar cladding as installed to some of the walls ('the cladding') complies with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992).
