The application for determination arises from a dispute about the authoritys decision to refuse to accept an application for a building consent from the applicant.
The application for the building consent was to fit out new wet areas (bathrooms, kitchens and laundry) to the ground floor of a building.
The building work being undertaken to the ground floor was part of a fit out to the ground floor to create apartments.
The applicant considers that some of the proposed building work that was to be carried out is exempt from the need for a building consent under Schedule 1 of the Act and therefore was not required to be included.
The matter to be determined is whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in refusing to accept the application for a building consent.
