The report and consent of the Council must be obtained to demolish a building.
This consent is required if the proposed demolition of a building is more than 50% volume of a building and/or the proposed demolition forms any part of the façade of a building.
A demolition permit must be obtained prior to commencing work. This is a requirement under Section 16 of the Building Act 1993.
When lodging your application you will need to submit a completed application form, a site plan showing what is being demolished as well as the distance from the demolition works to the boundaries and a credit card authorization form - these can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
