Western Bay of Plenty District Council has initiated a change in policy regarding reclad projects to ensure a consistent approach is taken.
This may include:
- Full recladding
- Partial recladding
- Targeted repairs
- Discrete repairs
- Over cladding
The guidance has been complied to assist the decision making process around processing and inspecting of this type of work to provide a quality and robust outcome. This policy applies to the recladding of any buildings or parts of a building designed and built under the Building Act (1991 or 2004).
These applications will be classified as complex when they are submitted. to ensure that a suitably qualified Building Consent Officer is assigned to them.
This policy does not apply where an addition or alteration is taking place and is intended to match the new cladding with the existing by removing some of the existing cladding and replacing it with new cladding then it may not be required to meet this reclad policy.
