District Council requirements - Building Consent
Every Council in NZ has a District Plan that includes Rules for each zoning. Kliptank work closely with all the councils throughout New Zealand and understand their individual requirements.
We take the hard work away from you and will apply for a Building Consent on your behalf. We know the quirky questions they want answers to and can complete the forms quickly.
Council has the right to request a foundation/location inspection and a final inspection. Kliptank will co-ordinate these visits between the Purchaser and the Council. Once the tank is completed and the final inspection has been passed, we will apply for the Code Compliance Certificate to ensure the Kliptank has met Local and Regional regulations.
Depending on the Council, a Resource Consent may be necessary due to the rules outlined in the District Plan.
If this is the case, Kliptank can complete simple Resource Consent Applications but may advise you to deal directly with your local Resource Consent Management Services for more complex applications.
A Building Consent normally takes 20 working days to process from the date it is lodged and accepted, however you would normally need to allow approximately 6 weeks for a Resource Consent.
