Planning and Resource Consents

  • ​​The Resource Management Act 1991 (the RMA) (Section 36) allows extra fees to cover actual and reasonable costs if the Deposit is inadequate.  If the total cost to process an application exceeds the Deposit, additional fees will be charged. The Council will refund part of the Deposit if the work required to process the application is less than expected.
  • The Deposit must accompany the application. 
  • Discounts will be allowed on charges for applications for resource consent and applications to change or cancel conditions if these are not processed within statutory timeframes. Such discounts will be in accordance with the Regulations to the RMA.
