If a rule is breached under the District Plan, resource consent approval is required for the proposed activity. For Council to assess your application, it helps if the relevant information is all provided and the plans are detailed and easy to read for the Council Planner to have a good understanding of your proposed activity when processing your consent. This will help reduce delays, misunderstanding and potential cost.

When a resource consent is granted, it is subject to certain conditions, i.e supplying an Environmental Management Plan. It is the responsibility of the land owner to comply with any conditions set in the resource consent approval. The Council may undertake monitoring, including a phone call or site inspection, to make sure that conditions are complied with.
Note: a resource consent lapses five years after the decision has been issued if the proposal was not given effect to.
