Applying for a Building Consent
As of 1 July 2015, our building team started processing building consents completely electronically. For more information, please refer to the Building Consent Lodgement Guidelines.
When applying for your building consent you should also ensure you are able to comply with the requirements of the District Plan.
Be sure to check you have filled in all the necessary details and provided the necessary paperwork. This will help to speed up your application.
