Building Services

Ngā Whakaratonga Waihanga

Our Building Services team provides support to our local community - including builders, architects, developers, and members of the public who may not have built before. We can assist with any of your building queries such as building consent applications, inspections and compliance checks, and Building Code guidance.

Note: Certain developments will also require a Resource Consent alongside a Building Consent, so please also refer to the Resource Consents page for information.



eDocs - Online Document System

eDocs is our online file portal which gives public access to property and consents records.

To use it for the first time, please register with your email address and create a password.

eDocs provides an open and transparent approach to accessing property information. It enables all document records not marked as confidential to be publicly accessible. It includes, for example, emails between agents applying for Building Consent and us at QLDC.


Building inspections

Requests for building inspection bookings can either be made online or on the phone (03 450 0369).
