How do I arrange a building inspection?
Make an appointment as soon as you know when the work will be ready to be inspected; phone Council on 871 5000.
We require a minimum of 24 hours notice and will usually be able to inspect the work within 24 to 48 hours, during business hours. Up to three days notice may be required at times of high demand. Please be aware that requests for exact inspection times and particular building officers cannot always be accommodated.
You will need to provide the following:
- Building consent number
- Site address
- Type of inspection
- Name and contact phone number of the person who will be on site at the time of the inspection
- In the case of Restricted Building Work, the name and contact phone number of the Licensed Building Practitioner
Note: If it is more than six years since the issuing of your Building Consent then the inspection request will be referred to Council's building team leader inspections prior to any booking being confirmed.
