Do I need a building consent?

The Building Act 2004 does allow for certain building work to be exempt from requiring a building consent.

The guidance document below details all building work that does not require a building consent.

If the work you intend on undertaking does not meet the requirements of one of the exemptions, then it is more than likely it will require a building consent.
