Garden Sheds

Siting a garden shed

Follow these guidelines from the Building Act 2004 if you are siting a garden shed or similar small building on your property.

  • For various options refer to the linked Garden Shed Fact Sheet​ above.

  • Neighbour consent to site accessory buildings close to legal boundaries is almost always a condition of a building and resource consent. A neighbour has a right to refuse to give consent.
