A re­minder for those sub­mit­ting Build­ing Con­sent ap­pli­ca­tions between Novem­ber and Jan­uary.

In ac­cor­dance with Sec­tion 48 of the Build­ing Act, Coun­cil has 20 work­ing days to grant or refuse a build­ing con­sent ap­pli­ca­tion. How­ever, the pe­riod from 20th De­cem­ber to the 10th Jan­uary every year is not clas­si­fied as work­ing days un­der the Build­ing Act 2004.

Tararua District Coun­cil Of­fices will be closed from 5:00pm 21 De­cem­ber un­til 8:00am 7th Jan­uary. There­fore any build­ing con­sent ap­pli­ca­tions sub­mit­ted af­ter 1 De­cem­ber 2018 will be af­fected.

Dur­ing this time, in­spec­tions are gen­er­ally lim­ited to emer­gency sit­u­a­tions or those pre-ar­ranged with the Build­ing team.

Re­mem­ber s if you are plan­ning any con­struc­tion, re­moval or al­ter­ation work you will need to ob­tain a Build­ing Con­sent be­fore the work be­gins.
