  • Resource Consent Decisions

For security reasons, there are certain property files that require the owner’s written permission for release such as Banks and Government Buildings etc.

If a Building Consent has been applied for in the past, we may hold a floor plan for the property. If you require a specific document this is generally a free service, contact our Customer Services team to discuss.
