This dispute for determination was whether the territorial authority's decision to decline to issue a code compliance certificate for the 2-year-old buildings because it was not satisfied that the earth brick walls of the buildings complied with clauses B2 Durability, E2 External Moisture and E3 Internal Moisture of the Building Code was correct.
The questions to be determined were:
- Whether the plastered earth brick cladding system as installed to the walls of the buildings, complied with the Building Code.
- Whether the cladding was able to comply with clause B2 of the Building Code, considering the particular risks and special durability considerations that apply to the type of construction used in these buildings.
- Whether the buildings complied with clause E3 of the Building Code.
