Building Consents Online

Building consent and Code Compliance Certificate applications are now submitted online. 

Save time online with self-service building consent applications. 

Our new Building Consents Online system allows you to submit, manage and track applications for both consents and Code Compliance Certificates, from anywhere, at any time.

We’ve also provided a free set of tools on our new website, Build+, to help you answer the tough questions around building projects, such as:

  • do you need permission from Council for your project?
  • what landscape features might alter your designs? 
  • what do you need to submit with your building consent application?
  • how can you make the process faster?

A set of calculators can help you work out whether you need a consent for projects like fences, retaining walls and decks, and a property information map will show any features like natural hazards, slopes and stormwater/wastewater assets. This is handy whether you’re an industry professional or a home DIYer.
