      if the work is done by registered plumber there is no risk for council they should recognise this.

        I am on the North Shore. Are you saying the legislation provides me with an exemption? Do you have a link?

          I am saying that council a have the discretion to issue a exemption for the requirement to obtain a building consent for building work (under exemption 2 of schedule 1)and the low risk nature of this work should be recognized and an exemption granted. But you have to apply for one and we all know the commonsense that we hope councils may demonstrate is not always evident, But we live in hope.

            Are the council demanding the whole house plans be freshly drawn up by a registered draughtsman? (how would they tell if they weren't?)
            Or do they just want someone to draw the house plans to scale with measurements similar to what a draughtsman would do?
            Does the council already have the house plans in their records?
            It would be nice if you got the answers from the council instead of your draughtsman.
