A lot of information is required to apply for a Building Consent in order to ensure everything is covered. More details about this are listed on the Building Consent Application Form.
If you are not familiar with building plans and compliance with the building code you may need to engage a design professional (an architect for example) to supply the required drawings and information and to apply for the building consent for on your behalf.
We recommend you set up a pre-application meeting to ensure you have all the information required.
Completed application packages can be delivered to the Wairoa District Council office at Coronation Square, Queen Street or be posted to Wairoa District Council, PO Box 54, Wairoa 4160. A deposit is payable at this time.
Your application will be checked to ensure the required information is provided before being accepted. Applications will not be accepted if information is missing. This initial check is for content of the application only. A more detailed check will be carried out during the processing of your application.
