The Building Consent Authority (BCA), part of Council, screens proposed building work to ensure buildings are safe, people’s health and wellbeing is considered, and the design and construction promote sustainable development.

The BCA grants or refuses certificates (e.g. building consents or Code Compliance Certificates) to people wanting to undertake building work or who have completed building work under a building consent.

All building work requires a building consent unless it comes under exemption.

A building consent is confirmation that the proposed building, plumbing, drainage and safety requirements comply with the Building Code.

Simpli is an online tool for making an application for Building Consents (including solid fuel heating and amendments), Code Compliance Certificate, Certificate of Acceptance, and LBP declarations.

You can do also download the forms, fill them and send or bring them to Council, but please note we may charge for the extra work required.
