Get your Hard Hat & Hammer Ready… Government scraps building consents for Small Home Projects | Ep. 69

Following on from our episode around lockdown renovations, the Government announcement could not have come at a better time. It has been announced that the Government has scrapped some red-tape for DIYers after ruling people no longer need consent for a variety of small projects around the home. This applies to low-risk building work which includes things like sleep-outs, sheds, carports and awnings. This is going to fasten up the process and give you more money to spend the build, materials and decorating. Kayne, Isa & Goran chat around what this means for all the keen DIYers of NZ!
