This determination considers the authority’s refusal to grant building consent for a house designed with modular units that are manufactured off-shore. The design of the modular units was not supported by a MultiProof certificate at the time the application for building consent was made, but the authority maintained its refusal after a MultiProof certificate was issued. The determination discusses the range of information available on which the authority could rely in making its decision.
