The determination arises from the authority's decisions to issue building consents and code compliance certificates for the four-year old houses at the addresses given in paragraph 1.1.
The authority's decisions are disputed by the applicants, due to concerns about the performance of the timber weatherboards on each of the houses.
The matters for determination in terms of sections 177(b)(i) and 188 of the current Act are whether the decision of the authority to issue a building consent for each house was correct; and whether the decision of the authority to issue a code compliance certificate for each house was also correct.
