The application arises from a dispute about whether a lift must be installed in a two-storey building proposed to be used by a district health board for the administration arm of a children's mental health unit. The matters to be determined are: (a) Whether a lift is necessary for compliance with clause D1.3.4(c) of the Building Code and if so (b) Whether the building is to undergo a change of use in terms of 115 and the Building (Specified Systems, Change the Use, and Earthquake-prone Buildings) Regulations 2005 and if so (c) Whether it is reasonably practicable to install a lift.
