Apply for a building consent

Save time and money with self-service building consent applications – paper applications are no longer required. Our new building consents online system allows you to submit, manage and track applications from anywhere, at any time.

All applications submitted on or before 27 June 2017 will continue to be processed manually until the code of compliance certificate has been issued.

All applications submitted on or after 28 June 2017 will be processed online. However you can still submit a paper application if you wish, and we will load the information electronically for you. Please note this will incur a scanning fee.
