How long does it take to get a building consent?
Building consent processing time depends on the complexity of your project and whether or not you have provided us with sufficient information.
All building consents are required to be approved within 20 working days, however; if information is deficient the time clock is stopped and a formal request will be made for further information. The time clock is not restarted until all of the requested information is received.
It is possible that your building consent application requires checking by several disciplines; it is possible therefore, that the clock may be stopped on more than one occasion.
