The work carried out had numerous issues and was not in accordance with the building consent. The Respondent also failed to provide a record of work for the restricted building work due to a payment dispute. The Board considered that the Respondent’s behaviour was likely to bring the LBP scheme into disrepute. The Respondent’s licence is cancelled and he may not reapply to be licensed for 12 months. The Respondent is also ordered to pay costs of $3,000 and the Board will further publicise their decision.
