This determination arises from the installation of a wood pellet burner into an existing brick chimney. The owners obtained a building consent for the installation.
The authority is currently refusing to issue a code compliance certificate and issued a notice to fix to the owners which stated the required testing of the pellet burner had not been completed where the timber wood is in contact with the chimney.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers of decision in issuing a notice to fix for the installation of a pellet burner.
