This determination arises from an application for a building consent for alterations to an existing building.
Prior to the authority processing the consent application it sought confirmation from the applicant as to whether a waiver or modification would be sought for Clause G5.3.4 of the Building Code in respect of the proposed reception counter. The consent was granted and the counter has been constructed; the applicant is seeking a determination on compliance and requesting a waiver under section 69(2) on the requirement in section 118 to provide an accessible counter.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the reception counter complies with Clause G5.3.4 to the extent required by the Act, and whether a waiver should be granted under section 69 of the Act.
