Booking an inspection

Inspection bookings

A list of required inspections is attached to building consents. Inspectors may require additional inspections if construction sequencing differs from what was anticipated when the consent was granted. Inspections need to be booked through the Council call centre, phone: (04) 527 2169. Please have the building consent number available and ensure that your contact details (phone and email) are relayed and recorded correctly.

We encourage you to book as early as possible as waiting times vary depending on demand. Bookings are specific to your requested inspection type for a specific consent. If you are not going to be ready please cancel your inspection 24 hours prior. Late cancellations can incur the full inspection fee. Swapping an inspection is at the discretion of the inspector.
