What Happens Next?

Your application may need to be reviewed by several Council Officers. For example Planning, Environmental Health, Utilities, Roading, Plumbing / Drainage and Building.

The application is processed to verify that if the project is constructed in accordance with the application it will comply with the Building Code. Incomplete applications or ones with inadequate details will be suspended for further information.

During processing of your application it may be identified that third party inspections such as those carried out by Engineers for specific design details of the project are required with the agreement of the applicant.

The time required for Council Officers to check your proposal varies and has a bearing on how long it takes before your consent is granted. The Building Act 2004 requires Council to process consents (if not suspended for further information) within 20 working days.

All buildings that have a multi-proof consent from the MBIE will have a processing time of 10 working days.

No building work can be commenced until the Building Consent is granted.
