    Sometimes, it's a matter of being pedantic and asking the right questions.

    Many a 'tiny house' is on wheels.

    That removes the need for a building consent from the council.

    However, there can be other planning issues that a council could invoke, depending on their District Plan.

    What Perry said. When you say "tiny house" council inspector draws a picture of permanent structure.

    What you need to say "large caravan" which you'd like to use as accommodation for a family member for say 12 months. For sure there will be no requirement for a building consent but could be for a resource consent for which you need to talk to on-duty planner.

    Called the council building consents team. They have said a tiny house or any structure (with or without drainage) over 10sq.m requires a consent. Not sure why some people sell tiny houses saying they do not require consents?
    the other possibility is that the council are wrong?

    counci struggle to understand that there is a difference betwwen a "buiklding" and "building work"that needs consent.

    you can build a building under 10m2 on site without consent but you can drop a prefab or paark a tiny house without consent as long as there is no foundation or drainage work \required but then you only need the consent for the foundation and drauinage.

    Thw law is developing and probably why councils are uninformed,there is a determination here that explians this:

    So hang on, according to that determination, you don't actually need a building consent to relocate, you only need one for the associated tasks - connecting services, foundations etc.

    So how is it that councils demand a re-site report? Demanding floorplans etc of proposed relocatable? And how is it that I recently heard of a relocation project in Auckland held up by the council for 8 months over a consent? Sounds like they are overstepping themselves. (Again.)

    According to all these determinations only act of moving doesn't require consent. But even this little fact is incredibly useful as it allows you to bring the house to your section, put on temp foundation and wait for consent processing saving on storage fees. But as of last year RotoLC had no idea about it and forced me to keep my house on yard premises costing me $200 a week.

    Do you think if you'd seen this determination and the precedents it quotes, things might have been different?
