Good news!

Our team is currently set up and working from home.  This means that some services can still be undertaken and completed.  While the council office remains closed and no onsite inspections can be undertaken, the following services are still able to be provided for building consents:

  • General phone questions and queries,
  • Replying to emails
  • Reviewing and accepting incoming documents for consents
  • Importing, vetting and processing of consents
  • Remote/photo inspections for Owner/builders working on their own properties – you will be able to book and have certain inspections undertaken remotely.  You will need to ring to discuss these.

Please contact us by email or phone 03 756 9010 or 0800 474 834 if you have any questions or queries.
