The application arises from the neighbour's concerns that: (a) building work being carried out on the owner's property under a building consent issued by the territorial authority extends over the boundary into the neighbour's property; (b) in the course of carrying out the building work, workmen have entered the neighbour's property and the neighbour's property has been physically damaged; (c) there is no separation between the owner's and the neighbour's drainage systems; (d) water collected or concentrated by the building work is likely to cause damage or nuisance to the neighbour's property. The matters for determination are: (a) whether the building work complies with clauses B1 Structure, E1 Surface water, and F5 Construction and demolition hazards in respect of the protection of the neighbour's property; (b) whether the territorial authority's decision to grant the building consent should be confirmed, reversed, or modified.
