The sooner we talk, the better.

Even if you're going to be working with an architect and builder, you may have questions about the process, or about the rules and standards we work to. We're happy to answer those questions - the earlier we talk, the better.

If you're undertaking commercial building work, we recommend that you always discuss your proposal with us first.  Commercial buildings can be complex.

You can come and talk to one of our Building Consent Officers at no charge. The team are available in our Richmond office from Monday to Friday, between 10.30 a.m. and 3.00 p.m.

To make an appointment, please call us on 03 543 8400 and ask for a time to talk with a duty building consent officer.
