Pre-application meetings enable us to efficiently process your resource consent application.
Pre-design meetings are held to give applicants the opportunity to meet with Council staff, prior to a pre-application meeting to discuss a development proposal in the "pre-design" phase.
This "design- scoping" phase for a development proposal may include arranging for potential applicants to attend a Council Urban Design Panel Meeting where advice is given on the ways that the design elements of a proposal might be improved.
Pre-application Meetings are held so that Council Officers can discuss a development proposal and the reasons why resource consent is required, prior to lodgement.
The effects of the proposal can also be discussed, in addition to the potential parties considered to be affected, and the expected process that will occur once an application for consent is lodged.
