This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for an 8-year old house and garage because the authority was of the opinion that reasonable progress had not been made in respect of the time taken to construct the building. Subsequent to a draft determination, the authority has also raised the issue of when the durability period for the building work should commence. The matters to be determined are whether the authority correctly exercised its powers when it decided to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate; and whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, which was current at the time that the building consent was issued) taking into account the age of the building work.
