Buller District Council

Building Consents Online

16th March, 2016

You are now able to lodge a building consent application on line by going through the link on the Council website www.bullerdc.govt.nz and selecting Building or directly at https://consents-westcoast.abcs.co.nz/

Applying online will allow you to attach plans and specifications electronically saving time and resources. The deposit can be paid by direct banking referencing the applicant name and site address.  Once the application is in the system you will be able to track its progress and if further information is required Council will contact you directly by email. You will also receive the approved consent documents by email although a hard copy will still be printed off to be available on site.

The new system will also allow a code compliance certificate to be issued from the site to an email address once a final inspection has been completed and approved provided all required documentation, including any additional fees, have been received.

A live demonstration of how to lodge an electronic application will be held at the Westport Library on Thursday 31/03/06 at 400 pm. If you regularly lodge consent applications this is a great opportunity to see how it is done and you are more than welcome to attend.

You will still be able to lodge a hardcopy application in person and Council staff will enter your details and scan the documents in to the system for you.
