Building & Planning

Our Consents team are here to help you with all of you planning and building needs. They work on a wide range of projects from processing land use and subdivision consents, to preparing policies and plans for the sustainable management of the environment.  Planning for our future helps improve our quality of life and ensure that Horowhenua remains a great District to live, work, play and visit.

Council's Building Consent Authority has been accredited by IANZ and is registered with the Ministry of Business, Employment and Innovation to ensure that certain minimum standards of health and safety are met in all building construction works.  Everyone needs to be able to assume that the buildings in which they live, work, shop, play and visit for any reason are not dangerous or unsanitary.
