The application arises from the issuing of a certificate of acceptance by the territorial authority in respect of certain alterations to the building that were made without building consent for the purpose of changing the use of two floors of the building from household units to an early childhood centre.
The matters to be determined are:
- (a) the territorial authority's decision to issue a certificate of acceptance;
- (b) the territorial authority's decision to give notice under section 115 (in the form of the certificate of acceptance) to the effect that the building may be used as an early childhood centre);
- (c) whether the building, if used as an early childhood centre, would comply as nearly as is reasonably practicable with the provisions of the Building Code for means of escape from fire.
