The matter for determination was whether, based on the details that had been supplied to date, the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a building consent unless it was subject to a section 73 notice was correct.
The authority was of the opinion that the land on which the property is situated is subject to the natural hazard of slippage and considerd that the proposed works were not minor.

- the proposed alterations complied with the Building Code, including (if required) any waivers or modifications issued in terms of section 67.
