This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the 10-year-old addition, because it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in refusing to issue a code compliance certificate for the building work. In deciding this matter, the following must be considered:
- whether the addition as a whole, which was originally consented under the Building Act 1991 (the former Act), complies with the Building Code that was current at the time of consent; and this involves consideration of:
- whether the interim code compliance certificates were correctly issued in respect of the work carried out under Building Consent No SR 64168 (the original building consent) issued on 27 July 2000 under the former Act;
- whether the work carried out under the amendment to the original building consent which was issued on 26 November 2007 under the Act (the remedial work), complies with the amended building consent;
- whether the remedial work complies with the Building Code.
