Apply for Resource Consent
Before lodging your application, check with our duty planner to see whether you need to come in for a pre-design or pre-application meeting.
Please also check with Council's Development Contributions Team whether a development contribution charge will be applicable to the consent prior to lodging your application.
You, or someone representing you - such as a builder, architect, surveyor or planning consultant - must complete an Application for Resource Consent.
Applications will only be received for formal lodgement when all documentation is correctly completed together with fees payable, a full explanation of a proposal, assessment of effects, plans and checklists.
