The building consent process is about ensuring safe and durable buildings.
When your building work is inspected and a code compliance certificate is issued, you will have documented assurance that your building work complies with the building consent.
All building consents are conditional on being able to inspect the building work. At various stages during construction, you will need to arrange inspections to verify that the building work has been completed in accordance with building consent requirements.
The common types of building inspections carried out by Hurunui, Waimakariri, Christchurch, Selwyn and Ashburton Councils.
There are a range of other types of inspections that may be undertaken during the course of construction.

If you wish to make changes to your building consent this may be done by way of a minor variation or an amendment.
Submit your construction documents as the build progresses for faster code compliance processing.
Every building consent involving new structures needs confirmation of the location. The scope will vary depending on the complexity of work
