A Project Information Memorandum (PIM) is a report issued by us that contains:
- information that we know about your property
- details on the authorisations you’ll need to get and issues you’ll need to consider and deal with for your building consent application.
You can apply for a PIM either before, or as part of, your application for a building consent. However, please get in touch first – we’ll talk through your project and let you know if you also need a resource consent.
The information covered by a PIM includes:
- potential inundation and flood risk
- the building’s heritage status
- identified cut and filled land
- the site’s wind zone
- the possible presence of hazardous contaminants
- stormwater and wastewater systems
- resource consents and other authorisations that may be required
- the need for an evacuation scheme (where applicable)
- site vehicular access restrictions during construction work
- any notification that you can’t do building work because some necessary authorisation has been refused (despite a building consent having been issued)
- confirmation that you can do the building work subject to the requirements of any building consent or resource consent or your obtaining any other necessary authorisations.
