Please note: A number of QLDC’s online services will be offline tonight (Friday 23 October) at 9.00pm for an estimated 30 to 60 minutes, due to an update to our internet connection.

Services affected by the outage include eDocs, Infringement Waivers and our GIS mapping systems.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

On-site Wastewater Disposal

Property owners wanting to build in  areas without a council reticulated wastewater network need to consider their options carefully. 

In most cases a domestic Onsite Wastewater Disposal system will need to be designed and installed for the property to allow discharge to land.

If improperly designed or installed these systems have the potential to contaminate waterways and areas outside the property.

To install an onsite system a QLDC Building Consent will be required. In certain cases a QLDC or Otago Regional Council Resource Consent may also be required.

For information guidance and application forms for Onsite Wastewater System Building Consents, please head to:
