How do I apply for a building consent?
You can complete an online application via our AlphaOne system, or print and complete a PIM/BC application form [PDF, 274 KB] (Form 2). With your application you will need to provide information that is relevant to your building project.
Our new electronic system allows you to submit your application from the comfort of your own home. If you don't have access to a computer, or would prefer to lodge your application in person, you can do so at our headquarters at 2 Norman Kirk Drive, Rolleston.
On receiving your application Council will vet your plans to ensure all relevant information has been provided. Please note that this is not a technical assessment but merely a check to ensure all necessary information has been provided.
If all information has been provided, your application is accepted and the 20 working day statutory clock starts.
