Use our Online Services to apply for building and resource consents, to track your applications, avoid scanning fees and reduce application processing time.
All our consent documents are stored electronically. If you choose to submit a hardcopy application, you will incur an additional scanning fee. If you submit your consent application by hardcopy or if you provide additional information by hardcopy there maybe delays with your consent due to your hardcopy information having to be converted and scanned into the BCA's system.
To avoid scanning fees and minimise processing time, submit your documents using onlineservices.ccc.govt.nz. (external link)
