Building Department – Alert Level 3

23 April 2020

With the government announcing the change in alert level from 4, to 3 at 11.59pm Monday 27 April 2020, it enables most construction related businesses to recommence work, if they can do so safely with some restrictions for Health and Safety.  This means that inspections for building construction can commence from this date, where we are able to determine that required Covid-19 Health and Safety processes are in place. Priority will be placed on inspections previously booked that were unable to be undertaken when we moved into Alert Level 4

Please contact the Building Department on 03 756 9040 to book an inspection.  You will be asked some questions relating to Covid-19 and may need to provide some additional information, as per the protocols on the MBIE website and the Construction Industry website.  All contractors / construction business should have received these documents and be working on putting them into place.  A brochure from SiteSafe is also available. Please refer to the links if you haven’t received these.

Westland District Council is committed to working alongside Government to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As an industry, we are united against COVID-19 and will do our outmost to protect our workers, the wider community, and New Zealand.

We know that we’re in this together – this means trusting that those we work with will keep us safe and that we’ll do the same for them.  We recognise that we must work together to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone in the supply chain.

We look forward to working with you.
