Search the archives

Search the archives

Use the archives search to find:

  • documents, files and correspondence
  • Council publications
  • maps and plans of the city.

Once you have identified the records you wish to view from the database, you can then visit the Archives to see the items themselves. The database does not include archive items that have not yet been catalogued.

Building plans, permits and consents

The archives search is for historic research only. If you are looking for building plans, or copies of building permits or consents, you can make a request for these through the Building Consent Search Service.
