NEW COMPLIANCE DOCUMENTATION EFFECTIVE AS OF 1ST JUNE 2017

The changes to the Compliance Documents for the building code are effective as from 1st June 2017.

New Building Consent Exemptions (Aug 2020): More information about the new exemptions, including technical requirements, will be available on www.building.govt.nz in August. It is expected that LBP technical requirements will be on the website later this year.

Always check with your local council to make sure your proposed building work does not have any district planning implications (eg maximum site coverage, yard/setback requirements, daylight access planes or permitted activities). A resource consent may be required and it is important that you obtain this before starting any building work.
