NEW GUIDANCE FOR BUILDING WORK THAT DOESN’T REQUIRE A BUILDING CONSENT
MBIE have just released a new guide.
In November 2013, Schedule 1 of the Building Act was amended. Schedule 1 details the type of work that does not require a building consent. It clarifies the types of building work that are exempt and who can carry out this work.
Keep up to date with changes to Schedule 1 by reading the latest guidance published by the Ministry: Building Work that does not require a building consent.
