The application is in respect of a decision by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for the construction of a proposed house unless changes are made to the design of the roof, on the grounds of its inability to shed water. The authority has restricted its concern to the upper roof of the building, and this determination is therefore limited to that matter. The matter for determination is whether the roof cladding system as proposed for the upper roof of the house ('the roof') complies with Clause E2 'External Moisture' of the Building Code.
