Building consent fees

How it works

  • All fees due are payable when you apply for a building consent.
  • You can pay by EFTPOS, credit card, or by attaching a cheque to your building consent application. If you want to pay online using your credit card, you can do so by going to our pay online service and selecting the property payment type.
  • When we receive the application, we will calculate the fee, and if your estimate is lower, you will need to pay the balance. This will not hold up the application process if paid before the consent is issued. 
  • Occasionally, additional fees may arise if:
    • as we work on applications we find additional areas that need investigation
    • after we've issued the building consent, there are changes to the proposed building work that require an amendment to be lodged.
