About this determination


Note: This determination is subject to clarification


This determination considers the authority’s decision to issue a notice to fix for work carried out without building consent.  The determination turns on whether the structure is a ‘building’ under section 8 of the Building Act or is excluded from that definition by section 9 because it is a ‘boat ...used in navigation’.
