QLDC has developed the eDocs website as an information portal for the fast and transparent accessing of Building Consent and Resource Consent information. The service is guided by the legislative requirements of Section 217 of the Building Act 2004, Section 42 of the Resource Management Act 1991 and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987. Because of this some consent documents may be excluded from public searches and will not be accessible via this service. Some documents may also not be electronically accessible due to their age or data transfer limitations. For this reason please do not rely solely on this information to make decisions as we do not guarantee that eDocs provides a complete record.
Documentation Limitations: Many properties have a significant number of very large files associated with them which can cause issues with data transfer and downloading. In these cases, we recommend that you search by consent application number rather than property. You should also search by consent number for those Resource Consents that have no property associated with them (e.g. lake or river based activities). If you are unable to locate a particular building or resource consent please email services@qldc.govt.nz for assistance.
