Find out how long it takes to get your building consent application approved.
We are currently experiencing record numbers of resource consent and building consent applications meaning we are exceeding our usual timescales. Your patience is appreciated as we continue doing all we can to support our local construction industry in a timely and efficient way.
How it works
It usually takes up to 20 working days to process a building consent application, as long as we have all the information we need.
This 20 working day clock begins from when we accept your application and is put on hold:
- when we are waiting on payment of an invoice, until we receive the payment
- if we send a request for further information, until we receive a response.
National Multiple-Use Approval (MultiProof) certificate
If you are applying for a building consent that includes a National Multiple-Use Approval (MultiProof) certificate then the statutory time frame is 10 working days.
A National Multiple Use certificate is issued by MBIE and any application needs to be completely within the conditions and options documented in the certificate.
If this is not the case then we will come back to you and the application is likely to be processed as a standard building consent with a 20 working day time frame.
Unfortunately that may mean the application process is delayed – so it pays to provide us with all the detail we need right from the start.
