Did you know consents have changed?

Did you know that from 31st August 2020 consents for low-risk building works are no longer needed? The exemptions have been introduced to free up the construction sector for higher value work. 
The exemptions include:
·        Single story detached buildings like sleepouts, sheds and green houses where plumbing work is not required and up to a maximum 30 square metres
·        Carports up to 40 square metres·        Ground-floor awnings up to 30 square metres
·        Ground-floor verandas and porches up to 30 square metres
·        Permanent outdoor fireplaces or ovens
·        Flexible water storage bladders
·        Ground-mounted solar panel arrays
·        Small pipe supporting structures
·        Short-span (small) bridges
·        Single-storey pole sheds and hay barns in rural zones

For many of the exemptions, the requirement is still for a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) to either carry-out or supervise the work. Get in touch if you want to chat through some options that might fall in to these categories.
