Car Port Exemptions
Exemption of Schedule 1.
A building consent is not required for the following building work:
the construction, installation, replacement, alteration, or removal of a carport that does not exceed 20 square
metres in size and is on the ground level.
This exemption provides for a simple roofed structure that will be used for motor vehicle storage.
To be regarded as a carport, as opposed to a garage, at least one side must remain open to the outdoors
at all times.
