How building consent applications work

Once an application has been received, the process that Council staff follow when processing the application is prescribed by the Building Act 2004. Here's how it works.

Step 1 - get advice and plan your work
Step 2 - put together your application
Step 3 - We'll make sure we have all the necessary information
Step 4 - We'll review your proposal against the Building Code
Step 5 - We'll grant your consent
Step 6 - build your project, and get your inspections done
Step 7 - when your build is finished, apply for your Code Compliance Certificate
