The launch of the new Auckland Council on 1st November will see the start of a new era of Local Government. This involves bringing the services and functions of the seven city and district councils plus the Auckland Regional Council together as a single entity. As a result there will be a number of organisational and process changes across the region.
Manukau Building Consultants is part of the new Auckland Council's Building Control unit and is no longer operating as an independent Council Controlled Trading organisation.
Initially you will not see any changes in the services provided apart from a new name and brand. All current technical/operational staff are confirmed in roles with the Auckland Council and the business unit will continue to operate out of the Botany Junction offices in much the same way as it does today. This means there will be minimal disruption in the way you go about getting your Building Consents or Code of Compliance Certificates.
From the 1st November 2010 you will still be able to lodge your consents at the current MBC offices in exactly the same way as you were. There is also no need to be concerned about any work-in-progress being undertaken during the change-over period.
