This determination arose from the authority's decision to issue a building consent for the construction of a proposed house subject to a section 73 notice on the grounds that the land on which the house was to be built was subject to flooding (inundation).
The matter to be determined was therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in issuing the building consent under section 72 of the Act making it subject to a section 73 notice.
In making this decision it was considered whether the proposed building work complied with the Building Code in respect of inundation; and whether the land was subject to a natural hazard such that the building consent should be subject to a notification under section 73.
