Building Consent requirements are set by central government (in Wellington) and are intended to ensure that buildings are safe, healthy and durable.

Resource consent requirements are determined by the Upper Hutt City Council district plan and are based around conditions specific to Upper Hutt and the District Plan zones (residential, industrial, rural etc.) They address effects on the wider environment  – including noise, traffic and amenity.

Depending on the nature of the proposed work a building consent and/or resource consent may be required. Council staff are happy to advise on individual situations.

Upper Hutt City Council participates in the GoShift partnership and uses Goshift forms for certain applications.To ensure that we provide you with the latest versions of forms and their guidance our website links to the Goshift “tool box” web page where writable pdf forms can be downloaded and completed. Should you need help finding forms please call, we are here to help.
