All buildings for housing animals must be of sound construction, vermin proof and must comply with the building code and planning requirements. The interior surfaces should be constructed of readily cleanable materials. A concrete floor is preferable and any liquid floor washing or floor drainage must be disposed of in an approved manner.

You may need a building and/or resource consent. You must apply for this before you start construction.
