The Resource Management Act (RMA) sets out the criteria for making a decision on whether a resource consent application is publicly notified or not.
There are two types of notification, and we make the decision about which type based on the application and the information supplied with it.
The public in general are notified if:
- the effects of the proposal on the environment are assessed as being more than minor
- written approvals of all those affected by the proposal haven't been obtained.
We will place a public notice on this website and in the media which summarises the application. Anyone can lodge a submission supporting or opposing the application or to indicate a neutral position, within 20 working days.
All notified resource consent applications for the last seven months are listed in the tables below:
Open for Submissions
If we decide not to publicly notify an application, we will only notify those people who may be directly affected by it and only they can lodge a submission.
If anyone who is affected provides their written approval, we don't need to notify them and they can't lodge a submission.
