The matter before the Authority was whether a safety barrier was required alongside a waterfront walkway. The walkway is part of a development of the territorial authority's facilities, but it is constructed on land below the line of mean high water spring tides so that, because of the definition of 'territorial authority' in section 2 of the Building Act 1991, the building consent falls to be granted or refused by the regional council, as the 'organisation authorised to permit structures pursuant to section 12(1)(b) of the Resource Management Act 1991'.
