Find out how to get a project information memorandum (PIM) and why and when you might need one.
A PIM is a memorandum that contains Hutt City Council information about your property that may affect a proposed building project.
It's not a mandatory document for your building project, but it can be helpful as it shows potential issues you need to be aware of and may reduce delays.
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.
When to apply for a PIM
You may apply for a PIM either before, or as part of, your application for a building consent.
