The determination arises from a decision made by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for proposed building work that consisted of retrofitting urea formaldehyde foam insulation in the external walls of the applicants' house.
Based on the information provided in the consent application the authority was not satisfied on reasonable grounds that compliance with the relevant clauses of the Building Code had been demonstrated.
The matter to be determined is whether the proposed building work complies with the Building Code.
In making a decision it was considered whether there was sufficient information in the building consent application to form a view on reasonable grounds that the proposed building work and the existing building as altered would comply with the Building Code to the extent required by the Act if completed in accordance with the plans.
