Apply for your building consent online

Building consents 630

Customers can now sign up and apply for their building consent online.

Since the earthquake our building team has seen a steady increase in the number of building consent applications. The 2018 Satisfaction survey showed that around two thirds of properties in the district may still require earthquake repairs or rebuilding work and we expect many of those may still need a building consent.

The online service is provided by Simpli and will make the process simpler and faster for customers.

More than 20 councils across the country are involved in Simpli which aims to improve performance, consistency and service delivery across the building consent system. It is supported by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
