The Council sets its building consent fees as actual and reasonable costs for the service.

These are set by the Council pursuant to Section 219 of the Building Act 2004 and Section 150 of the Local Government Act 2002.

There are two types of fees, which relate to the types of building project being undertaken:

  • Fixed fees – these are for simple project types where the costs are easily identified before application.
  • Estimated fees – based on anticipated costs for that building project type.
