Building Consent Checklist

check list Each council may have different requirements for submissions for a building consent. The list below is an indication, only, of what may be required.
To complicate matters, requirements are constantly being updated so you must check with your council.
Application forms can be uplifted from Council offices and most Council websites have them available as a downloadable pdf.

Generally you are required to provide the completed building consent application form including an estimated value of the building work, with the following information attached

  • Proof of Ownership
  • Locality plan
  • Inspections and Monitoring
  • Site plan
  • Foundation plan
  • Drainage plan
  • Floor plans
  • Wall Bracing plans
  • Elevations
  • Sections and details
  • Cladding details
  • Specifications
  • Producer statements
  • Solid fuel heaters
  • Water supply details

Note: THIS LIST IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE BUT COVERS MOST OF THE EXEMPTIONS PERTAINING TO DOMESTIC SITUATIONS. IF YOU ARE UNSURE, ASK YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL BEFORE DOING ANY WORK. BUILDING WORK THAT IS EXEMPT FROM HAVING A BUILDING CONSENT MUST STILL COMPLY WITH THE BUILDING CODE. THE BCA (COUNCIL) WILL OFTEN REQUEST ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO THAT SUPPLIED AND THE 20-DAY CLOCK WILL STOP UNTIL THAT INFORMATION IS PROVIDED TO THE BCA.
