The determination arises because the territorial authority issued a notice to fix in respect of unconsented alterations to the house and carport ('the building work'). The notice to fix required the applicant to: ' apply for a certificate of acceptance for the completed unconsented work and a building consent for uncompleted work, or ' apply for a building consent to upgrade and reinstate the unconsented work. The applicant sought a certificate of acceptance for the completed work, which was declined because the work did not comply with the Building Code. The territorial authority then issued a second notice to fix. The matters to be determined are the issuing of the notices to fix and the refusal to issue the certificate of acceptance.
