This determination arises from the authority's refusal to accept proposed alterations to an existing commercial building unless two existing external walls are upgraded in relation to fire resistance rating.
The applicant has prepared plans for a building consent but has not formally lodged this consent with the authority, pending the outcome of this determination.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in the proposed exercise of its powers to refuse to grant building consent with respect to fire resistance rating of the existing external walls.
