This determination arises from the decisions of the territorial authority to issue a notice to fix for a 1-year-old replacement garage/carport because no building consent had been obtained for the building work, and to issue a certificate of acceptance that excluded the construction of the carport due to its 'unacceptable construction'.
The two matters for determination are whether the carport:
(a) required a building consent
(b) complies with the Building Code, in particular Clauses B1 'Structure', B2 'Durability', E1 'Surface Water', and E2 'External Moisture'
