Local body councils often get a bad wrap, especially when it comes to building consents. Now I may be biased since I work for ours, but I have to say Tararua District Council rocks.
We have bought a second hand garage that is currently in the Brittons yard in Napier. It’s a nice old wooden one in good nick. Doing it up and getting it here on site will be significantly cheaper than buying some hideous coloursteel new construction.
I filed for consent with the lads in the building section only last Thursday and consent came in the mail today! They must have completed it and sent it the same day I filed. So our building inspection team rock! 🙂
