Tauranga City Council’s Building Consent Authority (BCA) has introduced four self-certified inspections on a trial basis to help alleviate current inspection waiting time issues. Self-certified inspections must be carried out by Licenced Building Practitioners (LBPs). LBPs can self-certify inspections for tanking, pre-plaster, pre-stopping/bracing and block foundations (no more than 3 blocks high).You must call 07 578 6666 in advance to let Council know when you will be carrying out this inspection.
