Project Information Memorandum (PIM)

A PIM is a report that contains Council information which may affect your proposed building project.

Examples of information could include:

  • the need for an evacuation plan approved by the New Zealand Fire Service
  • potential erosion, slippage or flooding
  • the presence of any hazardous contaminants known to the Council
  • details on stormwater and sewerage systems
  • any development contributions payable
  • other relevant authorisation requirements (resource consents and bylaw approvals)

While optional, a PIM can reduce delays in getting approvals and highlight potential issues in large projects. 

Apply for a PIM

Fill out an application for building consent (965KB PDF), and check out the guide to completing the building consent application form (1.17MB PDF).
