Building Consent Application
From 1 October 2016, South Taranaki District Council joins more than 20 councils that are working together to bring consistency to the building consent process.
The vision of the initiative, called GoShift, is to deliver a consistent, and timely consenting experience with the aim of delivering simpler, faster building consents, says South Taranaki District Council building control manager Marcus Deans.Mr Deans says GoShift councils are now using consistent application forms and guidance.
“Anyone who is making a building consent related application needs to now use the GoShift forms,” he says.
The new forms are the first stage of this initiative. Standardised processing checklists and approval processes will be released later this year.
