Building and consents

If you are planning to build or renovate your home or business premises, almost everything you build needs to meet a number of standards and regulations like the Building Act 2004.  

Council's Building Control Services have been accredited by the Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) and International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ) to ensure that certain minimum standards for health and safety of the building users are met in all building construction works.

COVID-19 Update: Building Services at Alert Level 1 Site Inspections will continue to operate in accordance with the Construction industry protocols. Find the updated COVID-19 Standards and Protocols on the CHASNZ website. Our other services in the Building Team are operating as near normal as possible. The building team request that anyone wishing to speak with an Officer do so by making a telephone appointment in the first instance.
