The determination arises from a decision made by the authority not to grant building consents for proposed building work that consists of a range of works to improve the house using the PSPs methodology. In this case, the building work considered (that is in dispute) is the installation and application of certain technologies the PSP has developed to improve the resilience of buildings in terms of the impact of lack of weathertightness and durability provisions on generally untreated timber framed buildings (the building work in question). The matters to be determined are: 1-whether there is sufficient evidence to conclude the building work in question (which is a proposed alternative solution) complies with the Building Code to the extent required by the Act for this house; and 2-whether the authority was correct to refuse to grant the building consent for this house.
