The matter for determination is whether the proposed alterations to a meat processing plant ('the proposed alterations') comply with Clause C of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992).
The application for determination asked the Department to consider:

- and the decision of the authority, who indicated it would refuse to issue a building consent for the proposed alterations if no additional fire safety precautions were proposed.
