1. Check if you need a consent to repair or replace a spa pool

Have your plan ready

Before checking whether you need a consent to repair or replace your spa pool, you need to know:

  • dimensions of the project (height, total area)
  • materials of the proposal
  • location on property where the project will go
  • size of the property in square metres
  • total pre-existing building coverage on property
  • total pre-existing hard surfaces on property.

There will be an explanation on how to calculate these factors in the online consent tool.

How to check if you need a consent to repair or replace a spa pool


Our online tool helps you check if you need a building or resource consent to repair or replace a spa pool.

This tool only applies to spa pools where the top surface of every pool wall is never less than 760mm above the adjacent floor or ground and the pool walls inhibit climbing.

Have your plans ready before you start.

It should take you about 10 minutes to complete.
