This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 30 June 2016, replaces clause 18 of Schedule 1 of the Building Act 2004. Schedule 1 of the Building Act 2004 contains a list of building work and classes of building work for which building consent is not required. Clause 18 of Schedule 1 relates to carports and contains conditions that must be satisfied for building work in connection with a carport to be exempt.
This order replaces clause 18 to remove the condition that required a carport to be on or attached to an existing building. A carport that is not on or attached to an existing building may now fall within the scope of the exemption in clause 18. The effect of this order is therefore to extend the scope of building work in connection with a carport for which building consent is not required.
Date of notification in Gazette: 2 June 2016.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.
