Land Use

Attend a pre-application meeting

You may need to attend a pre-design or pre-application meeting prior to lodging your resource consent application. The purpose of a pre-application meeting is to facilitate communication between applicants and the council so that the applicant can make informed decisions about applying for consents, permits or licenses.

​Apply for a Resource Consent

You will need to apply for a land use resource consent if your proposed activity or structure does not fully comply with the relevant rules and standards in both the Operative and Proposed District Plans.
