This determination arises from the proposed decision of the authority to refuse to issue a building consent for repairs to a dwelling. The refusal arose because:
- a) the authority is of the view that the building underwent a change of use in terms of section 115 of the Act; and
- b)the authority required the applicant apply for a certificate of acceptance for the change of use and required information regarding the compliance of the building work with the relevant clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined is therefore the proposed exercise by the authority of its powers of decision in relation to the condition placed on the issue of the building consent.
