Certificate for public use

A certificate for public use allows the public to access a building before work is finished

Do I need this certificate?

Yes, if you want the public to access the building. It's the way we show it's safe, and also a requirement of the Building Act.

How to apply

Once these steps are complete the application will be reviewed.

Then, once the safety steps eg. hoardings or fencing are installed, we'll work with you to arrange an inspection.

The public cannot use the building until the certificate is issued.
