Building consent conditions are requirements imposed on your building consent. These are deemed necessary to ensure the compliance of the proposed building. The conditions are listed on the building consent and you must comply with these conditions.
The following are allowable conditions under the Building Act 2004 and regulations:
Section 67(2): Waivers and modifications
Section 73: Natural hazards
Section 75(2): Building on 2 or more allotments
Section 90: Inspections by building consent authorities
NOTE: This can also include any third-party certification that the building work complies with the plans and specifications, for example, producer statements or memoranda.
Section 113 (2): buildings with specified intended lives
If specialist inspections are required, these will be agreed to between Council and the applicant during the consent process. Specialist inspections (typically, engineering disciplines), will generally mean that a producer statement will be required. Advice or advisory notes may also be attached to the building consent.
