Guidance on applying for building consent with us, and how to change or withdraw your building consent application after you've submitted it.
Apply for your Building Consent online
You can download and complete an application for a building consent (Form B-002) [PDF, 798 KB], also available in Word [DOCX, 425 KB], and provide information that is relevant to your building project. We provide downloadable checksheets which will help you complete the application form.
Alternatively you can also pick up an application form from any Council service centre(external link), or we can post one to you if you call us on (03) 941 8999.
If you are not familiar with building plans and compliance with the building code, we recommend you engage an experienced professional to supply the required drawings and information, and to apply for a building consent on your behalf.
