The matter determined was whether the authoritys decision to refuse to issue a building consent was correct.

It was considered whether the plastered straw bale wall systems proposed for the exterior walls of this house would comply with Clause B2 Durability, Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause E3 Internal Moisture of the Building Code.
