Inspection

In most cases a building inspector from Council will need to visit the building site at various stages during the work to ensure work complies with the consent. Typically, the inspector will record the inspection by making notes and taking photos.

The outcome of your inspection(s) will be verbally communicated to you onsite as well as e-mailed to the relevant contacts that were put on the submitted building consent application.

The granting of a building consent is conditional on enabling the building work to be inspected.
