The wellbeing of our community and our team are our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the advice from the Government and Ministry of Health and will be updating our website as new information becomes available.
Alert Level 1
What does this mean for the Building unit?
Will you be issuing Code Compliance Certificates (CCC)?
Code Compliance Certificates (CCC) are being processed
as normal. All documentation must be submitted to us electronically
to firstname.lastname@example.org at
least 48 hours before your final inspection. Hard copy
documents, over the counter or at the final inspection, will not be
accepted but you will still need to have a hard copy of all documentation
onsite for the inspector to view.
What about extensions of time, exemptions, and CPU applications?
All other applications and accompanying documentation should be emailed to email@example.com and we will process these electronically and respond to you via email or phone.
What about inspections?
At this stage all inspections will continue under Alert Level 1, this includes Building Inspections, BWOF audits and pool monitoring inspections. Please maintain social distancing throughout the inspection and where possible discuss any issues by phone.
What does this mean for development?
What are you doing with Development Contributions payments?
Development Contribution payments will continue as normal and you will still be able to pay these as you normally would.
Will you be stopping your growth programmes?
No, all growth programmes will continue at this time. Long term planning must and will continue. Many of our growth programmes are long term programmes, so they will continue normally. We have several experts who continue to work on these programmes during this time.
Is the Urban Design Panel still available?
Our Urban Design panel can still be contacted and will be operating as normal.
We intend to have an online consulting team up and running to help businesses virtually through this time.
What does this mean for the Planning Guidance unit?
Can I still talk to someone around this over the phone or via Skype?
Absolutely. Please continue to phone and email us with any Planning Guidance and resource consents queries or pre-application meetings and we can arrange to speak to you over Skype, Zoom or video chat.
