This is a determination of a dispute referred to the Chief Executive of the Department of Building and Housing under section 17 of the Building Act 1991 as amended by section 424 of the Building Act 2004.
The applicant is the owner, and the other party is the Tauranga City Council.
The application arises from the refusal by the territorial authority to issue a code compliance certificate for a 5-year old house constructed from a proprietary kitset, unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding systems. The question to be determined is whether on reasonable grounds the monolithic wall cladding as installed to the external walls and columns of the house, complies with the building code.
