BUILDING & RESOURCE CONSENT
You do not need to apply for resource consent to undertake house recladding work. However, your building consent application will be subject to more intensive inspections compared with other applications by the council.
A general cautionary note, if you do proceed with re-cladding work without having been granted a building consent, the Council will issue you with a stop-work notice and require you to obtain the necessary consents before the work is able to continue.
Tip: It does take time to get drawings completed by the architect and to obtain building consent.
