3. Apply for consent to add, repair or replace a garden shed

Our tip

If your garden shed is close to a boundary, and you have the written approval from your neighbours, you can apply for a Deemed Permitted Boundary Activity.
 
This application replaces the need to apply for a resource consent.
 
You will still need to apply for a building consent, if required.

 Online
