About temporary buildings
Temporary buildings are structures like:
- grandstand seating
- stages that are more than 1m high.
Some of these temporary structures don't need a building consent, some will need an exemption approval and some might need a building consent. Talk to us about your project and we'll let you know what to apply for.
Note: All building work must comply with the building code and relevant legislation.
