Council and Public

If your building new or renovating it’s important to understand what the difference is between PUBLIC and PIRVATE drainage, including which territorial authorities are responsible. If your drainage is to be affected in one way or another by your build or renovation, you will most likely need to approvals prior to begin. Further below we have provided some relative documents and information that will help you get your head around the process. auckland_council_logo
Depending on your type of work, In Auckland one or more Authorities may apply, for example:

  • Auckland city council (Which is different to Manukau and North-shore as far as drainage regulations are concerned)

  • Drainage Engineer

You architect / planner can advise on council consent processes and matters that do not entail drainage. WHAT IS CONSIDERED PRIVATE AND WHATS PUBLIC DRAIANGE? The quickest way to find out whether a drain is public or private is have a look on Auckland councils website and see if a drain has been declared public under section 462, or is included in councils records as an asset. Visit Auckland GIS by clicking on the following link AUCKLAND GIS In many instances there is still some controversy as to where council will come to the party as far as costs are concerned if a drain needs to be fixed or altered in cases of flooding. We have had experiences where council has considered the private drain to be “private” right up to the public connection which can be outside your boundary to the middle of the road. Meaning as the owner of the property you are liable. This is why is very important to get your drains inspected before buying a property. For more information on Drainage Inspections please visit our CCTV PAGE
In Auckland there are two types of systems:
  1. The combined system which uses only one sewer to convey everything, Stormwater, waste water and solid and liquid excreta.
  2. The separate system which provides one sewer exclusively for stormwater, and another separate sewer for soil and waste water.
