Amendments and Changes to Your Building Consent

If you wish to change or alter an existing building consent, you can apply to do so.


You are able to change your plans at any stage of the process, however any changes will need to have a further compliance check and this may slow your application down or stop construction until the amendment is approved.

Changes to the issued building consent can sometimes be achieved as a variation. If they are of a significant nature then a formal application will need to be made.

Amendments will add to overall processing costs, as you will be charged for any changes you wish to make to the building consent.

New projects may not be added to your consent once submitted - only changes to the original plans. A new building consent application is required for additional projects.
