Processing your application

To grant a building consent we must be satisfied on reasonable grounds that that the provisions of the Building Code would be met if the building work were properly completed in accordance with the plans and specifications that accompanied the application. We are not required to grant consent until fees and levies are paid.

We have 20 working days to process applications (10 days for MultiProof / multiple use approvals). The clock starts on receipt of a complete application and may be suspended for requests for further information. A suspended clock will restart when all information requested has been received.
