HAMILTON, Thursday

Proceedings were taken by the Building Controller before Mr. S. L. Paterson, S.M., in the Magistrate's Court to-day against Stanley Gilbert Bowden, builder, and Denis Barrett, clerk, now of Napier, for exceeding the conditions of a building permit by adding a workshop or garage, which -was not provided for in the permit.

Mr. A. L. Tompkins, for the Building Controller, said it was stipulated that iron roofing was not to be used, the permit being for fibrqlite. The same applied to downpiping and spouting. No permit would be issued for a garage under the regulations unless it was required for business, for the reason that every garage saved made more materials available for houses.

The garage referred to was of brick veneer with a tiled roof, and was a substantial structure. The Controller held that this was a deliberate breach of the regulations. If owners induced builders to ignore the regulations they were equally liable.

Mr. P. D. Robertshaw, for both defendants, pleaded guilty and said that Bowden did the work at the request of Barrett, who was building a home. When the building was erected no fibrolite was obtainable.

The magfstrate reniarked that it must be annoying if the fibrolite specified in a permit was not obtainable, but that did not justify a breach of the regulations. Bowden would be fined £2 10/, and Barrett £5.
