This determination arises from a notice to fix issued by the authority for the construction of the earthship on the applicant's property without building consent first being obtained.
While it is not disputed by the applicants that the building work was not exempt under Schedule 1 of the Act, the notice to fix included as one remedy that a determination on compliance be obtained, and the applicants have accordingly applied for this determination.
The matter to be determined is the exercise of the authority's power of decision in issuing the notice to fix. In this determination I have also discussed the content of the notice to fix with respect to the requirement to apply for a determination.
