Project Information Memorandum (PIM)
A PIM contains Council information that may affect a proposed building project.
Once you have an idea of what you want to build and have some initial plans, a PIM can tell you whether or not your project needs resource consent, building consent and/or other approvals from the Council.
It's optional to get, but it can highlight potential issues and reduce delays for large projects.
Request a PIM
Note: A Land Information Memorandum (LIM) includes historical and current information on commercial and residential properties, and can be helpful if you are interested in selling or buying a property. A LIM includes a list of permits and consents but not the documents themselves.
Building permits and issued building consents
You can request copies of building permits and issued building consents we hold for a specific residential or commercial property through our building consent search service. The information in these varies, and might include:
- completed consent application forms
- drainage plans relating to consented work
- copies of plans and specifications
- code compliance certificates
- Project Information Memoranda (PIMs).
