Guide to the Building Consent Process

Monday 16 December 2013

To help people who are planning to build or alter their houses, the Council has prepared a new guide to the Building Consent Process.

The guide is split into the two parts - how to have a building consent accepted and processed; and how building work is inspected and certified.

Anyone who has questions about the process can ring a Duty Building Officer on 03 543-8400.

Holiday Timetable

Please note that building consent processing is on hold from 20 December 2013 until 10 January 2014.

A Duty Building Control Officer is available during office hours.
