This determination arose due to an application from the owner in respect of the decision by the territorial authority to refuse to grant a building consent for the construction of a proposed house with an attached carport on the seafront, on the grounds that the house did not comply with the provisions of the Act in respect of building on land subject to natural hazards.
The matters to be determined were:
- Whether the proposed building work complied with the provisions of the Building Code in respect of coastal erosion and inundation; and
- Whether to confirm, reverse, or modify the territorial authority's decision to refuse to grant the building consent.
