Regardless of where or what you’re building, it’s likely you’ll need a building consent. Below we’ve put together a comprehensive rundown about how to apply, process and plans, LBPs, CCCs, exemptions, restricted work, and some handy FAQs.
All building work must be carried out in accordance with the Building Code and the Council's District Plan whether or not it is exempt from a building consent.
Additional to this, resource consent may be required. If you are unsure whether resource consent is required or if any specific requirements of the District Plan are required to be met please contact the Planning Department.
