Before a building permit for demolition can be issued, you may need to apply for demolition consent. You can apply for Consent to Demolish by completing the online form.
Applying for Consent to Demolish
You may need demolition consent from the Planning department before a building permit for demolition can be issued (pursuant to Section 29A of the Building Act 1993). If you are unsure whether Demolition Consent is required, we recommend you seek the advice of a registered building surveyor.
To apply for a Demolition Consent, you need to provide the following along with your completed application form:

- Fee of $83.10
Other ways to apply
