Solid & Liquid Fuel Burner Building Consents
A building consent is required to install or move solid or liquid fuel heaters. After installation you will need to apply for a code compliance certificate, this will allow for a final inspection to be booked. You must not use your fire until the code compliance certificate has been obtained.
Apply for building consent submitting documents using Upload Files Using Sharefile. In some cases we may accept hardcopy applications at the counter.
- Form 2 Building Consent Application
- Checksheet (CS19SFLH)
- Proof of ownership
- Letter from the owner appointing agent
- Full floor plans showing the burner and smoke detectors (we may have plans for your property you can access on eDocs). Diesel tank location.
- Elevations, sections and other details depending on whether you are installing/modifying a flue or chimney or making alterations to accommodate the new fireplace.

- Plumbing schematic for wetbacks

After approval you will be sent a link to the approved documents. Ensure all approved documents are printed off and install heater in accordance with the approved documents.
