In March 2023 Hutt City Council introduced Objective Build, a new online portal for the lodgement of applications for building consent. Unless instructed otherwise, all applications for building consents should be lodged using Objective Build. At the same time, we also introduced the GoGet inspection system to improve the quality of the building inspection process and the maintenance of inspection records.
