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 Building inspections

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 Inspection Lead Times
If you’re involved with booking building inspections by the QLDC team, either for yourself or for your clients, we need to advise that we’re currently experiencing considerably higher booking volumes than anticipated. We’re doing everything we can to bring in additional inspectors and turn around bookings as quickly as possible. However, for now current waiting times for inspections are between six and seven days in Queenstown-Wakatipu and up to ten days in Wānaka, with the possibility of extending further. So please ensure you allow plenty of time to get your booking requests in early so as not to cause delays to your projects.
