A Certificate of Compliance is a formal confirmation from the Council that an activity carried out on a piece of land is permitted and/or is lawfully operating under the Council’s District Plan and will not need resource consent approval.

Council may request further information where compliance has not been clearly established. It is up to the land owner or person operating a specific activity on a piece of land to provide evidence that demonstrates how the activity is complying with the District Plan requirements.
