NB: Providing all fees are paid, the PIM will be emailed to the applicant when it is issued. If the PIM is applied for with the Building Consent the timeframe for the issue of both is 20 working days.

Sometimes it may be necessary for Council to obtain further information from you to enable your PIM processing to be completed. In such cases the Council will contact you within 10 days of receiving the PIM application with a formal request for further information.

The Council has 10 working days from when this information is received to issue the PIM.
