If you are undertaking a housing project, be it a Relocatable, a New Build or Renovations, it is likely you will need a consent somewhere along the way. To avoid costly delays, its important to ensure your consent submission is watertight – and we can help you to achieve this!
Why do I need a consent?
Consents are used by all local councils as a way to monitor and approve any works that fall under the Building Code or the Resource Management Act. However, each council varies in how they manage submissions, review and approval of consents. It can be a really confusing process!
There are two key types of consents:
Building Consents – The approval required for any restricted building (construction) work, as dictated by the Building Code and residential work requiring sign off by an LBP (Licensed Building Practitioner)
Resource Consents – As managed by the Resource Management Act and relating to any changes in Land Use as dictated by the local councils district plan
We always recommend you touch base with your local council to confirm any consent requirements for your project.
