This determination arises from the construction of a timber jetty, gangway and pontoon. The timber jetty is under an approved building consent for a safety barrier on one side and is currently under construction including a pontoon and gangway.
The authority has declined an amendment to the building consent for the pontoon and gangway and is seeking for the jetty to now have a safety barrier on both sides to comply with Clause F4 as the jetty will now be a walkway to the pontoon.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority is correct to refuse an amendment to the building consent for a pontoon and gangway in relation to compliance of a jetty with clause F4.3.1 of the Building Code.
