Can I add an extension to my house

Yes, you can add an extension to your house in Christchurch, but there are a few important steps and considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Building Consent: Most house extensions will require a building consent. This is necessary for any structural work, additions, or significant alterations. Ensure your plans comply with the Building Code and check with the Christchurch City Council to see if your specific project requires consent​.

  2. Resource Consent: Depending on the scope and impact of your extension, you might also need a resource consent, especially if your project affects the environment, heritage sites, or neighbouring properties​.

  3. Planning and Design: Before starting, it’s crucial to have a detailed plan. Consider your budget, the extension’s design, and how it integrates with your existing home. Hiring an architect or a professional builder can help streamline this process and ensure all regulations are met.

  4. Professional Help: Using licensed tradespeople is essential. They ensure the work meets safety and quality standards and handle the necessary paperwork for consents and permits​.

By following these guidelines, you can successfully add an extension to your home, enhancing its value and functionality. For detailed information, you can consult the Christchurch City Council’s resources or visit the New Zealand Government’s renovation guidelines online.
