Comprehensive Consultancy

At Civix, we're passionate about helping you complete your development as efficiently as possible. Our team of experts is here to help you obtain all necessary approvals required to meet your objectives, and two of the most important approvals are s223 and s224c.

We believe that staying at the forefront of technology and innovation is essential for success in today's fast-paced business environment, which is why we are constantly investing in our own growth as well as the growth of our clients by providing them with the latest tools and techniques available.

That's why we offer an initial consultation service where we work with you to determine the best path for your project. At Civix, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide high-quality products at competitive prices.


Civix's surveyors gather and interpret a range of evidence in order to establish the location of existing boundaries and propose new boundaries within them in order to carry out the subdivision. Once these positions have been marked out in the field, the surveyors will prepare survey plans depicting the post-subdivision layout (alongside several other supporting documents required).

A draft copy of these plans are included when s223 applications are made to the relevant Territorial Authority (e.g. Auckland Council). They then have 10 working days review the application; if satisfied, they will then issue a s223 certificate confirming their approval of the survey plans. This is one of the approvals required to obtain a s224c certificate.


s224c is an intrinsic part of the subdivision process under the Resource Management Act. When Council grants Subdivision Consent, they will typically impose conditions that need to be met for works to proceed and for new titles to eventually be issued.

The team at Civix can help you understand these conditions and ensure that each one is met whilst assisting with obtaining other approvals required to support the s224c application.  We can then submit a formal application to Council detailing how all the conditions have been addressed and requesting that they provide a s224 certificate.

The s224c certificate confirms that Council has approved the survey plan and is happy that all the relevant conditions of consent have been met (or have been appropriately addressed by other mechanisms). Your solicitor can then typically apply for new titles!
