Dispute over a building consent for a house with clay block walls at 10 Greenway Drive, Kerikeri
This determination arose from a decision by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for a proposed house, because it considered it had received insufficient information in the supporting documentation to be satisfied that the proposed clay block wall system within it would comply with certain clauses of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter for determination was whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue the building consent.
In order to determine this matter it was considered whether the proposed clay block wall system complied with the Building Code. Based on the information available, the authority's concerns were about the clay block wall system in regard to its compliance with Clauses B1 Structure, B2 Durability, E2 External Moisture and H1 Energy Efficiency of the Building Code.
