Southern Building Control

The Invercargill City Council has joined with all the southern councils to share information and resources. The building control managers meet on a regular basis to discuss issues and promote good practice.

To ensure some consistency in the building consent process all councils have agreed to use the same format on the building consent application form including waiver and alternative solution forms.

These forms are available at all southern councils on their websites and also are able to be downloaded from the Southern Building Controls Group website (link below).

The Group’s website¬†also has useful Department of Building and Housing guidance booklets.

UPDATE: Information about Producer Statement Authors and links to related information (including the Producer Statement Author Register) are now available on the Producer Statements page.
