PIM (Project Information Memorandum)

A Project Information Memorandum (PIM) is a council-prepared report. It contains information on any special features of the land and regulatory requirements that are likely to be relevant to building. An application for a PIM is purely at your request and is not a mandatory requirement.

A PIM gives designers the information they need to produce accurate drawings. It also provides assistance for anyone else involved in the building project.  If your project is complex, then you should apply for a PIM before you apply for a building consent.

Issues raised in the PIM may help you to decide whether a project is a viable option for you. The Building Act 2004 requires Council to process PIM's (if not suspended for further information) within 20 working days.

PIM applications can be lodged on-line under Submit It and will be charged at the time of issue based on the actual time spent in processing the application.
