If you are undertaking any building, project or activity that may require consent or licence from Council please check with us prior to beginning. The cost of obtaining a consent or licence before work begins is often far less expensive if you have to correct any work to comply with legislation.
Building consents, issued under provisions of the Building Act, are needed for most building work.
Please note: Under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 the processing clock for a Building Consent stops for the period 20 December in any year to 10 January in the following year.
New online consent system
From March 2023, customers will be able to apply for a consent through Objective Build, a new service designed to create consistency and transparency in building consent applications.
