This determination arose from the territorial authority's decision to refuse to issue an amended building consent for a Hitex Diamond cladding system ('the cladding') installed by the applicant that was different from the cladding specified in the building consent. The territorial authority refused to amend the consent because it did not believe the cladding complied with Clause E2 'External Moisture' and Clause B2 'Durability,' of the Building Code. The applicant originally stated that the matter for determination was whether the cladding as installed on this house complies with the Building Code. At the hearing the applicant sought to amend this to whether the cladding in general terms, and not specifically as installed in this instance, complied with the Building Code. The matters to be determined are: ' whether the cladding as installed to the upper floor of the house complies with Building Code Clauses E2 and B2 ' whether the decision of the territorial authority to refuse to issue an amendment to the building consent is correct.
