Changes to Building Consent Fee Structure Effective 5 March 2012
Dunedin (Thursday, 9 February 2012) - The DCC’s Planning and Environment Committee approved changes to the building category-based fee schedule for charges under the Building Act 2004. These changes will take effect from 5 March 2012.
Deposits, payable on application of building consents, are minimum charges based on the expected reasonable cost relative to the building category and estimated value of work. The balance of costs will be invoiced on a time basis and are payable before further work is done.
The new fee schedule is attached and is also available from the DCC’s Customers Services Centre or www.dunedin.govt.nz/building-control-forms.
