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.
