If your property is listed in the District Plan as having a built heritage structure on it, there will be restrictions on the types of modifications you can do to the exterior of the structure and your property. These rules don't cover minor works such as small maintenance and repairs. The rules also do not include interior changes, however, if you're looking to do work that involves additions, alterations, removal, relocation or demolition you will need to get resource consent from Council before you begin.
The below table provides some typical examples of what works would require resource consent and what wouldn't. Noting some of these requirements are already in the District Plan.
|Exterior alterations or additions to any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Demolition of any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Accessory buildings or new buildings within any scheduled site||Consent required|
|Erecting, constructing or extending any structure or fence on a site||Consent required|
|Removal off site of any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Relocation on site of any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Reconstruction and reinstatement of any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Signs on any scheduled structures or buildings||Consent required|
|Internal alterations of any scheduled structures or buildings||No consent required|
|Maintenance and repair of scheduled structures or buildings that can comply with certain standards||No consent required|
|Minor work on a site of any structure or building that can comply with certain standards||No consent required|
