Regarding the authority's exercise of its powers in respect ot the change of use provisions of the Building Act for the alteration of part of a house at 6 Vanessa Crescent, Glendowie, Auckland
The matter to be determined was whether the proposed building work to change part of a games room to a second kitchen constituted a change of use, and therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers of decision in respect of the change of use provisions of the Act.
The authority was of the view that a change of use would occur, and consequently refused to grant building consent in respect of this work unless fire safety upgrade work was included in the building consent.
