Have your say about the building consent system


The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is asking for feedback on issues with the current building consent system. The Review of the Building Consent System issues discussion document aims to build a shared understanding of issues with the current consenting system as a basis for considering future system changes. How would you like to get involved and have your say?

If you work within the building consent system or have used it to get approval for building work in the past, MBIE would like to hear from you. They say your views on the building consent system will help to set the direction for future changes. We say, great. Let’s consolidate some thinking on this and submit on behalf of Members.

Following public consultation, MBIE says they will analyse the submissions and undertake further work to confirm the key issues and develop options for a new or revised building consent system for public consultation in 2023.

Submissions are due on 4 September 2022 at 5.00 pm.
