Apply for a building consent

Last updated: 14 Oct, 2021 08:06am

Apply online for a building consent through the Simpli website.
  • Submit your application
  • Acceptance by Council
The electronic Simpli form provides advice and guidance on what is required.

If you are not familiar with building plans and compliance with the building code you may need to engage a design professional (an architect for example) to supply the required drawings and information and to apply for a building consent on your behalf.

Visit Simpli for more information and to get started.

Submit your application

The electronic submission on Simpli goes direct to Council.

We can contact you through the same portal that you submit your consent.

Acceptance by Council

Your application will be checked to ensure the required information is provided before being accepted.

Applications will not be accepted if information is missing.

This initial check is on the content of the application only. A more detailed check will be carried out during the processing of the application.

Postal applications will be returned by mail if not accepted.
