This determination arose from the decision of the authority to issue a notice to fix for the placement of two shipping containers on the property.
The authority was of the view that building consent was required and was not satisfied that the containers complied with Clause B1 and Clause C3.3.5 of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns about compliance related to the lack of anchoring of the containers and the placement of the containers closer than their own height to the boundary of the property.
The matter to be determined was the exercise of the authority's powers of decision in issuing the notice to fix in respect of the containers.
