CHB District Council Successful IANZ Accreditation

Council has again gained IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand) accreditation, following its latest two-yearly reassessment and implementation of recommendations made by IANZ.

IANZ accreditation of building control processes within councils in New Zealand was introduced in 2006 as a means of ensuring that a council’s building practices met criteria and standards across a number of regulated requirements.

Recently appointed Chief Executive Monique Davidson says this achievement makes Council well-positioned to respond to the steady increase in consents that Council is experiencing. “As we look to the future, it is vital that we have a regulatory function that can support the community in achieving the desired smart growth this district is seeking. This has been the result of a significant team effort, to implement changes to our systems, processes and customer service”, says Mrs Davidson.

To meet the national shortfall of Building Control Officers, Council has taken positive steps in looking towards the future and has employed a Building Consent Officer Cadet.

The appointment of a Cadet, who is a local resident, will add value to the BCA team. Council has also partnered with Comply New Zealand, a building processing company to assist Council with the steady growth in building activity in the District.

The recent introduction of the ‘Go Build’ smart phone and tablet app has been a valuable addition to the building consent process. The Go Build free app enables people to book inspections online and receive confirmation of the booking through their device. BCA Administration Officer Rachael Stanbra says “this is a positive step moving forward, making it easier for builders to book inspections, and do business with Council”.
