The application arose from a dispute between the parties about whether a notice to fix can be issued requiring a certificate of acceptance to be sought for building work that was undertaken without a building consent but was exempt under Schedule 1.
The matter for determination was whether the proposal of the authority to issue a notice to fix was correct.
In deciding this it was also considered whether the building work was exempt under Schedule 1 of the Act and whether the authority was correct to require an application for a certificate of acceptance.
