The determination arises from a decision made by the authority to issue a notice to fix in respect of the blockwork forming the foundations of the house. The authority was of the view that the building work had not been carried out in accordance with the building consent or with the Building Code. Therefore, the matter to be determined is whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in issuing the notice to fix. In considering this matter, I must establish whether there was sufficient evidence for the authority to conclude, on reasonable grounds, that the building work did not comply with the Building Code and building consent.
