Building work that does not require a building consent
Schedule 1 details the type of work that does not require a building consent. Schedule 1 was updated in November 2013 as part of the Building Amendment Act 2013 to make the exemptions easier to use by clarifying the types of building work that are exempt and who can carry out this work.
A guide to Schedule 1 of the Building Act 2004 is being updated and will be available in early 2014.
The previous guidance [PDF 1.6 MB, 60 pages] has now been superseded but is available for reference as a guide to consent requirements for work done prior to 28 November 2013.
