This determination arose from a decision by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for proposed additions to a house unless changes were made to the design of the roof gutters and deck so that the slope of these elements complies with the authority's own design guidelines.
The matter for determination was whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue the building consent.
This determination was limited to the proposed falls to the deck and its gutters, and to the fall to the roof gutters. It was considered whether these elements would comply with Building Code Clause E2 External Moisture in respect of shedding water from the roof, and Clause B2 Durability in respect of the ongoing performance of these building elements.
