Building and resource consents

If you're planning to do building work in Wellington City, you may need to apply for resource and building consents first.

Consenting and compliance work – COVID-19 update

The Council’s consenting and compliance services are open, but the lockdown means we’ve had to cut back some of the things we normally do.

We’re prioritising work that relates to essential services or public health and safety.

We’re continuing to process applications and compliance complaints where we can while also preparing for resumption of full services as quickly as possible.

To meet requirements of the lockdown, we can’t do site visits, building inspections nor have face-to-face meetings with clients.
