If you are constructing a new dam, or altering an existing dam, you are likely to require a building consent if your dam is a large dam. You may also require resource consent under the Resource Management Act 1991.

The Building Amendment Act 2013 came into force on 27 November 2013. The Act amends the definition of large dams and introduces the new categories of classificable and referrable dams.
