This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue an amended building consent for use of a different cladding system, because it was not satisfied that the house would then comply with Clause E2 'External Moisture' and consequently Clause B2 'Durability,' of the Building Code. In the application the applicants stated that the matters for determination were: ' whether the amended cladding system on the upper storey of the proposed house complies with the Building Code ' whether the amended cladding system requires a 20mm cavity in order to comply with the Building Code ' whether the decision of the authority to refuse to amend the building consent is correct. In addition, during the processing of the application it became clear that the standard of the drawings submitted in support of the amendment to the building consent was also a matter for determination. The matters to be determined are: 1- Whether the authority has reasonable grounds for believing that the house, when built as proposed in the amended consent, will comply with the Building Code; 2- Whether the drawings submitted in support of the amended consent are to the required standard.
