Waikato Building Consent Group
The Waikato Building Consent Group is made up of seven councils working together to coordinate a consistent building consent process and they control the building laws, standards, quality control and building consents in the Waikato region.
The members of the group are Waipa, Otorohanga, Matamata-Piako, Waitomo, Hauraki, and Waikato District Councils as well as Hamilton City Council.
The group has developed a website where you can find relevant and useful information about building consents in the Waikato region. So whether you’re from the building industry or doing it yourself, the site is for anyone involved in a building project, large or small.
Visit the website at www.buildwaikato.co.nz.
