Construction Site Hoardings

The building code defines hoardings as 'structures alongside a public way providing side protection but no overhead protection'. They are required to secure work sites and provide for the adjacent safe passage of pedestrians.

Get creative and receive a waiver

Creative hoardings reinterpret construction hoardings by improving their look and feel so our city doesn't become visually dominated by fences and hoardings as we build. 

Normal hoardings can be transformed into creative hoardings at any time. They may be eligible for a waiver of up to 100% of Council's temporary use of legal road (TUOLR) fee of $15.30/m2 per month.

Two creative hoardings options are available:

  • Custom
  • Pre-designed.

Apply for a creative hoarding

  1. Send a completed temporary use of legal road application form to asset.protection@ccc.govt.nz
  2. To apply for artwork approval, touch base with us before you begin by emailing creativehoardings@ccc.govt.nz. We will discuss the process then ask you to email and attach the following:

Please allow 10 working days for the application and approval to be processed.

Once you've been approved and you've installed your hoarding we'll check it against what was proposed. If it still meets approval the waiver will be applied.
