Interior alterations

Interior alterations often need a building consent because they affect the structure of a building or parts of the building.

Solid or liquid fuel burners

Because of safety issues around appliances containing fire all solid and liquid fuel space heaters (such as wood, pellet and diesel burners) require a building consent to be installed or moved.

Solar water heaters

A greater uptake of solar hot water heating is essential as we move towards a more sustainable energy future. Find out about the Council subsidy and how to apply for consent.
