Online lodgement is here!

Once you have gathered all the necessary information, you can lodge the application through the ObjectiveBuild electronic lodgement portal.

If you need help with this or are unable to lodge electronically, please contact us on 0800 732 732.

ObjectiveBuild is an easy to use system used by multiple councils throughout New Zealand. If you are using ObjectiveBuild for the first time you will need to create an account.


ObjectiveBuild is designed to make the consent application process easier for all involved but building consent applications can be confusing, especially if you are not a professional.

So, if you get stuck using ObjectiveBuild and want some help, please get in touch with them directly on 0800 024 508.

If you are stuck with what types of information you require then you can email us at or give us a ring on 0800 732 732 and ask for somebody in the building team.

Using ObjectiveBuild is a straight forward step by step process to complete building consent application forms online. You will be able to attach plans and other electronic documentation that accompany your application with your submission and see in real time where your application is up to.

When attaching additional documents please make sure you follow the naming conventions and document structure laid out in our ObjectiveBuild document structure guide.
