This dispute related to the authority's decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the building work, and instead to issue a notice to fix requiring the applicants apply for an amended building consent to reduce the size of the area enclosed by the pool barrier.
The matters determined were:
- whether the pool barrier, including the immediate pool area it encloses, complied with Clause F4 of the Building Code; and
- whether the authority correctly exercised its powers of decision in refusing to issue the code compliance certificate and in issuing a notice to fix.
