How to Apply

How do I apply for and obtain a Building Consent?

You will need to complete the prescribed Building Consent Form.

Building Consent/PIM Application Form

Building Consent/PIM Woodfire Application Form

and attach two copies of the plans and specifications relevant to the proposed building work, as well as the required deposit or fixed fee.

A Certificate of Public Use application form may be required also, if the proposed building work will be undertaken where members of the public have access.

Once the Certificate of Public Use is granted work can commence, as it provides a detailed description where and how the premises/part or the premises will be used safely by the members of the public.

The Building Consent application form must be completed in full, and readable to ensure information is clearly understood. 

The Building Consent/PIM Application Guide provides you with comprehensive guidance on how to fill out the form correctly. If you require further assistance the Council will be happy to assist, please contact the Regulatory Team on (0800)422522.

Note: No work may be commenced until a Building Consent is issued.
