FAQs about On-site Shifts
An on-site shift is usually done when you own a relatively large section and would like to achieve a better section layout to either add a landscape feature, a minor dwelling or subdivide and add another house.
Largely an on-site shift is done to increase equity, meaning increasing the value for your land. Apart from the obvious benefit of that, this process can increase the housing stock available to New Zealander’s and can become part of the solution for the housing crisis across the country.
Demolition and building new instead of doing an on-site shift is definitely an option. It can even seem like the easier solution to getting your current house out of the way.
Demolition costs money and takes time and adds huge amount of pressures to our already at-capacity landfills. The house and all the materials would be wasted.
Additionally, doing an on-site shift means you save money by taking something that already exists and adding value to it, instead of having to start from scratch.
