The councils involved in GoShift are:
Carterton District Council Council, Central Hawke’s Bay District Council, Horowhenua District Council, Hutt City Council, Kapiti Coast District Council, Manawatu District Council, Masterton District Council, Nelson City Council, Palmerston North City Council, Rangitikei District Council, Ruapehu District Council, South Taranaki District Council, South Wairarapa District Council, Stratford District Council, Tararua District Council, Tasman District Council, Upper Hutt City Council, Whanganui District Council, Wellington City Council, Western Bay of Plenty District Council
A Programme Control Group (PCG) supports and guides the changes while three Senior Responsible Owners maintain strategic oversight of the programme.
SIMPLER, FASTER BUILDING CONSENTS
Go Shift has created:
- standardised processes, forms, templates and checklists for building consent applications
- an online application service for submitting, viewing and managing building consent applications and;
- a best practice, quality management manual for councils to manage the building consent process.
The longer term goal is a unified national approach that will make it easier and faster to get a building consent, no matter where you live and work.
