About this determination


This determination considers the authority’s decision to require a building consent for work carried out to a relocated dwelling to extend a kitchen into an area that was previously an enclosed veranda and close in an area that was previously the entrance to a back door. The decision turns on whether the building work falls within the scope of building work exempt under clause 15 of Schedule 1 of the Building Act 2004 from the requirement to obtain building consent.
