In the original application the matters to be determined were:
- under section 177(a), whether the proposed re-cladding system complies with the Building Code; and
- under section 177(b), whether the authority's decision to refuse to issue the amendment to the building consent is correct.
As the determination process proceeded, the parties' submissions were received and two draft determinations were distributed to the parties for comment.
In the course of this process it became clear that the authority is satisfied that the proposed cladding system complies with the Building Code. It also became clear that the authority's refusal to issue an amendment to the building consent is based solely on its dissatisfaction with the clarity of the drawings submitted with the application for an amendment of the consent.
Consequently the matter to be determined is now under section 177(b), whether the decision of the authority to refuse to amend the consent is correct.
