This determination arose from the authoritys decisions to issue three notices to fix for the conversion of a detached utility building into a self-contained minor dwelling.
The decisions arose because the authority considered that the work was undertaken without building consent when consent was required under section 35 of the Building Act 1991.
The matter to be determined was therefore whether the authority was correct to issue the notices to fix.
In deciding this it was also considered whether the building work complied with the relevant clauses of the Building Code.
It is noted that the applicant disputed the ownership of the property in that the notices to fix should have been issued to a family trust.
