This determination arises from a decision by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for alterations to an existing house unless changes were made to the material used for the proposed roof extension, on the grounds of inadequate fall.
Although those changes were made and the authority agreed to issue a building consent on that basis, the applicant is seeking a determination on the compliance of the roof material that was originally proposed.
The matter for determination, in terms of sections 177(a) and 188 of the Act, is whether there are reasonable grounds to come to the view that the roofing material originally proposed for the extension to the roof of the house would comply with Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
