Pre-Application Meeting - Building

A pre-application meeting is an opportunity for you to discuss your proposal with our Building Team. Talking with staff over your proposal before submitting your application can be beneficial.

The purpose of a pre-application meeting is to facilitate communication with Council staff regarding your project. Our Team can discuss Building Code requirements, processes, relevant documents required with your application, cost and other consents that may be required, i.e Resource Consent.

The Council’s pre-application service is available weekdays between 8.30 am to 5 pm.

Due to the volume of enquiries, we may not be able to accommodate ‘walk-in’ requests, we recommend arranging a time in advance to ensure that we are available to meet. To arrange a time, please contact our Building Team on 03 311 8906 or email us
