Applying for a Building Consent

Processing Checklists

All the Councils in the Waikato Building Consent Group use these checklists to process building consent applications. These checklists are available for you to use as part of your own quality checks to ensure all the required design work is compliant with the building code.

Why use our processing checklists?

You can save time for yourself and Council by using our processing checklists to check that your plans are ready to submit. All items on the checklist must be compliant with the building code.

Save money by being prepared through minimizing additional costs and time delays. Check that any required documentation is accurate and complete.

Better manage your brand/reputation by avoiding rework that costs time and money for all involved.

If you are providing a Producer Statement, check that you have provided adequate information. Your Producer Statement will be checked against the Producer Statement Checklist. If this information has not been provided, your Producer Statement will be rejected until you provide all the required information.

  • Producer Statements are required during, or at the end of construction.
  • See Producer Statement page for further information.
  • Please ensure that if you plan to alter an existing commercial building that you have provided a Fire Philosophy that meets the requirements of MBIE guidance.

If you require assistance in selecting the correct application form or checklist, please contact the Building Unit of your local Council.
