This determination arises from the authority's refusal to issue a building consent for stage two (of three) for an extension to an existing retirement village. The authority required the entry doors for each apartment to have a Sound Transmission Class ('STC') rating of 55 in accordance with Clause G6.3.1 of the Building Code.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority is correct to refuse to issue a building consent for the building for the compliance of the apartment entry doors with Clause G6 of the Building Code.
