This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for an 8-year old house and garage because the authority was of the opinion that reasonable progress had not been made between the issuing of the building consent in 2003, the final inspection undertaken in 2007, and the request in 2011 for a re-inspection of items identified as outstanding in the final inspection. The matters to be determined are whether the authority correctly exercised its powers when it decided to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate and whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, which was current at the time that the building consent was issued) taking into account the age of the building work.
