This determination arises from the decisions of the authority to issue two notices to fix and to refuse to grant building consent for additions and alterations to install a new lift.
The applicant went ahead and installed the lift without having obtained building consent.
The dispute centres on whether a current fire design report was required to support the building consent application, and whether the applicant's unit can be considered a building wholly used as a single household unit and accordingly whether a compliance schedule is required.
