Christchurch City Council Consenting Rebuild Report June 2012

Posted 25 Jul 2012 by Swiggs Popular

 

BUILDING CONSENTS

 

There were 20 working days in June with 627 building applicationsreceived = 29.9 per day.In May there were 23 working dayswith 722 received = 31.4 applications received per day.

 

The teams are adjusting tothe new measures but we have had to deploy manualdata gathering as the existing GEMSsystem is not well enabled to report.

 

 

BUILDING INSPECTIONS

 

100% of requested inspectionswere completed within three days of booking.Inspection requests for the Month remainat 2,000 - this is 200 above the previousyear’s average of 1,800.The team has resource to undertake this amount of inspections and have capacity to achieve 2,500 inspections per month.

 

As there is additional capacity in the inspection team, three inspectors have beenassigned to process and inspect Certificate of Acceptance applications.  Thisfrees up resources in the consenting team and also allows Building Inspectors to gain experience in otherareas.

 

 

CODE COMPLIANCE

 

The Code Compliance team issued 462Code Compliances and 25Certificates ofPublic Use in June.Five team members are now working in Build Express with a total of 550 jobs allocated across theteam.It is expected by September 2012 we will be issuing the first Code Compliance Certificates on jobs fully integrated in Build Express.

 

 

CUSTOMERCOMMUNICATIONS

RESOURCE CONSENTS

 

Please note that the figures in the table belowhave been modified from previous reportsto the Council to reflect data currently available from GEMS reporting.  It is hoped that tables can be modified over time to provide a more complete and clearer picture of resource consent processing times.  The numbers include both  earthquake  and  non-earthquake  applications.                                                              

The  first  table  includes  temporary  accommodation approvals as well as resource consent applications.   The latter tables exclude temporary accommodation approvals hence the different number ofapplications.

As  can  be  seen,  a  high  compliance  with  the  statutory  timeframes  for  processing  resource  consent applications continues.In June 95% compliance was achieved.

In the tablesbelow, numbersrelating to total elapseddays andCentral City approvals is now included.With respect to the elapsed day’s numbers, this includes total processingtime and includes the time when an application was put on hold for further information being requested.
